Students hit with policy changes 

Contributing Editor 

Students at JC were hit in the 
pockets and obligated to their 
conscience when they returned for the 
Fall term, finding a tuition increase of 
$1 per credit hour and the college's 
attendence policy tightened up from 
allowing a student to miss 25 percent of 
their classes to only 10 percent. 

The fee increase was authorized by 
the last session of the state legislature 
and approved by the JC District Board 
of Trustees (BOT) at a special meeting 
held Tuesday, July 17. The increased 
cost was retroactive for all students. 

Polly Young, President of the Student 
Government Association (SGA) stated 

that her immediate concern was over 
the short notice students were given in 
order to pay their additional fees. 

'As I understand it, about 75 percent 
of the students at JC are here on BEOG 
(Basic Educational Opportunity Grants) 
funds and won't even feel the 
increase," Young said. "But my 
concern was that there is another 25 
percent who are paying their own way, 
and they were given less than two 
weeks to come up with the extra money 
or they'd find themselves caught with a 
cancelled schedule." 

Young added that she has not had 
the opportunity to find out what the 
students' opinion on the new 
attendence policy is, but that from the 
few people she had talked to, "they 
weren't very happy. These students 

feel that they are adults and 
responsible enough to get themselves 
to class, and resent someone telling 
them that they can only miss classes 
three or four times." Young is now in 
the process of finding out what the 
policies are at other Community 
Colleges around the state. 

But contrasting what Young had to 
say about the students, Robert Moss, 
Acting Vice President of Student 
Affairs said that he found the majority 
of the faculty "overjoyed" with the 

"l m not used to rousing ovations 
from the crowd when they hear 
something I have to say," Moss said, 
"but when I told the faculty at a 
meeting just before the term started 
that the policy had changed to ten 

percent, an ovation is what I got." 
Moss added that the change was 
inihatedby a committee selected to 
review all student policies, including 
those stated in the Student Handbook. 

Under the new policy, students are 
permitted to miss three sessions of a 
Tuesday- Thursday class and up to five 
sessions of a Monday- Wednesday-Fri- 
day class. After a student has exceeded 
the number of absences allowed, 
according to Moss it will be up to the 
discretion of the individual instructors 
whether or not a student will be 
withdrawn from a class. 

"I'm not overjoyed with the changes 
myself," Young said, "but getting to 
class more often is something we're 
going to have to learn to live with . ' ' 

Allied health; 
modern annex 

by John Eades 
Staff Writer 

Since the beginning of the Fall term, health care students and 
staff will be using the accommodations of the recently built 
Allied Health Building. 

The lack of space for Allied Health programs prompted efforts 
to obtain $1.75 million capital outlay from the state to construct 
the modern, three-storied building. It houses 10 classrooms, 4 
labs, numerous conference rooms and a 200-seat lecture hall, 

Pending state approval, the building has not been officially 
turned over to the college, but classes are being held for phases 
of health related programs. Formal dedication plans have not 
yet been completed but it is anticipated that a complete 
dedication and ceremony will be staged by October. 

This addition has consolidated the health -care programs under 
one roof, and are no longer displaced within the campus. 
Nursing Dept. chairperson, Betty Morgan said she was glad to 
be out of the previous quarters where working conditions were 
difficult and cramped. "Fantastic. .wonderful," added Morgan. 

John Schiemderer, Allied Health chairman, has settled in the 
new facility and describes it as adequate with room for possible 
expa ^sion. Although unequipped with an elevator, Schiemderer 
explains that with the modern construction of the building, 
handicapped students will have no difficulty getting around. The 
neighboring Business Building located just east of Allied Health 
does have an elevator as well as covered walkways leading to 
automatic doors. Had an elevator been included, the new 
building would have lost one or two classrooms. 

Bill Watts, an Allied Health student assistant reports that the 
restroom facilities are specially designed with the handicapped 
in mind. 

Features like these make the new facility possibly the 
best-suited building on campus to cater to the needs of the 

Newly completed Allied Health Building. 

UF still at impasse 

The JC United Facility (UF) and the college's 
administrative negotiators are waiting for a 
special negotiator to step in and help solve 
disputes in the UF contract dealing with salary 
and benefits after declaring an impasse August 

Both sides have been at the bargaining tables 
since last May, and now Edward M. Eissey, 
President of JC, says "we've gone to the 
ultimate max," referring to the salary proposal 
that he said called for 7 per cent raises. Since 
this proposal affected less than half the faculty, 
the administration offered a 5 per cent general 
salary increase as an alternative. 

The UF scaled down its original demand from 

10 per cent to seven per cent. As an alternative, 
teachers have said they would agree to accept 
the 5 per cent salary raises plus a seven per cent 
increment increases for everyone, but when that 
was rejected they retracted that offer and 
returned to the seven per cent demands. 
According to UF sources, the outstanding 
issues are a seven per cent increase in salaries 
plus increments, retroactive to July 1, 1979, 
with interest; penalties for faculty refusing 196 
day contracts, tuition waver for dependents, 
censorship of UF activities and faculty input into 
selected of TV courses. 

The Special Master is expected to intervene 
within the next week. 

Courses mix medio 

by Bill Meredith 
Staff Writer 

In an increasingly compli- 
cated world of education, 
PBJC is now offering mediums 
for learning through television 
and newspaper courses. 

Designed for those who 
would like to attend college 
but don't have the time due to 
other obligations, accredited 
TV courses provide home 
viewing and reading. 

"The courses provide a great 
visual impact," said Ruthann 
Salinger, refering to sources 
aired on the screen. "We have 
found a broader knowledge 

Uniquely, video segments 
are broadcast on local stations, 
as well as in the campus 
library learning center, at 
regularly scheduled times 

"We have a turnout of about 
eighty to one hundred people 
for the four TV courses," 
commented Elizabeth A. 
Woolfe, a coordinator for 
Continuing Education at 

Institutes across the coun- 
try, have put the media 
method to use with films from 
various locations around the 
world. However, only approx- 
imately 21 courses are 
available at this campus, and 
as Mrs. Woolfe explains, 
"There is no way to earn a 
degree strictly by TV 
courses." • 

Unlike the audio-visual 
system, the newspaper study 
has limited crediting solely to 
the class Connections: Tech- 
nology and Change. Articles 
appearing in the Palm Beach 
Post-Times twice a week 

text is also issued. 

Courses via newsprint is a 
project of University Exten- 
sion, University of California 
at San Diego. Professor John 
G. Burke of Los Angeles 
coordinates the program 
funded by the National 
Endowment .for the Human- 
ities. The 15 newspaper 
lectures are distributed by UPI 
wires from California to some 
500 schools nationwide. 

"We expect a decent 
turnout, probably 25 to 30 
people," said John Townsend 
of Continuing Education. 
Townsend believes the stu- 
dents get as much knowledge 
out ot the paper courses as the 
conventional ones, stating that 
"students are usually more 
mature and more capable of 
independent study," and

Energy expenditures extract extra education 

Senate seats start SGA activity 

While politicians and gov- 
ernment officials rant to the 
public about conserving 
energy, a different approach 
has been taken at PBJC that 
could only stem from a 
budget-oriented system. In 
more ways than one, this 
campus has renovated the old 
financial philosophy which 
asserts it's not how much you 
save, but how much you 

According to a monetary 
statement acquired by Busi- 
ness Affairs president, Dr. G. 
Tony Tate, and assessed by 
college president, Dr. Edward 
M. Eissey, the modified week 
activated in Spring I and II 
terms this past summer 
followed along those thought- 
provoking lines. The schedule,

Dear Editor: 

This letter is to solicit the 
assistance of your newspaper 
in our effort to establish a 
meaningful and productive 
medium of communication 
with the free society. 
Presently we're incarcerated 
at Glades Correctional Institu- 
tion in the state of Florida and 
we write this letter in a spirit 
of faith that correspondence 
from the outside world would 
help to relieve the despair and 
painful loneliness that is 
inflicted by the harsh and 
unfriendly conditions of prison 

Your cooperation in giving our 
lequest for correspondence 
exposure to the student body 
through publication in your 
campus newspaper will be 
greatly appreciated.

impressive $5000 savings

enough to make anyone 
believe someone is extorting 
hard-earned student dollars. 

However, it's not extortion 
but expenditure, and the lack 
of it, which should put some 
3000 students at ease over 

"Had we continued under 
the same hours as in past 
years," commented Dr.Eissey, 
"the rate increases in power

$30,000 more. "

( Letters J 

I am extremely delighted that you have chosen Palm Beach 
Junior College to begin or continue your college education. The 
administration, faculty and staff at your college consider it an 
honor to be able to serve you. You are singularly the most 
important entity not only in our college, but in our society. 

As a former Palm Beach Junior College student, I am well 
aware of the sacrifices, the cost, and the hard work and hours 
which you have given or will give to reach your educational 
goals. I pledge to you as your president, my complete 
dedication and cooperation in assisting you to reach those 
worthy objectives which you have set for yourself. We are here 
to serve you. 

As a student, you have other responsibilities outside the field 
of academia which I know you will accept and successfully 
complete. You have a challenge to assist your college with 
whatever talents you may possess, be it athletic, musical, 
artistic, manpower, womanpower, intellectual, etc. It is not 
enough for you just to participate in the reading, writing and 
arithmetic portion of your education. To be a well-rounded 
individual you must give of yourself and your talents to gain 
experiences that will assist you in becoming a contributing 
citizen in whatever community you may live. 

There will be many projects that your president will 
recommend in which you should consider becoming involved. 
Your representative organizations will have plans and projects 
which you should support. I hope you will take advantage of 
those opportunities as they appear. 

I encourage and welcome you to utilize the "open door 
policy" not only in the president's office, but, in all areas of our 
institutions. I am looking forward to working with and serving 
you this year.

ing classes were expending 
high amounts of energy. But it 
was the kind of energy well 

"I felt the students 
absorbed more," claimed 
foreign language teacher, 
Mrs. Joan Jones, who's 
Spanish II class marked 
prevailing A's, "I would like 
to see it next summer. " 
Dr. Bill Boorman, instructor 
of the ambiguous course 
known as economics, also 
piefered the modified week 
despite additional teaching 
hours at night. 

Oddly enough, it's hard to 
say whether students advocate 
the program for next summer. 
Apparently the remarks of 
people attending this year's 
spring terms gave resistance 
to ending such classes now. It 
seems two hours for four days 

provided the high haimony in 
concentrating academic efforts 
before the expectation of a 
three-day weekend. 

With "no objections", the 
administration has already 
planned to implement the 
summer schedule again. 
Hopefully then, JC will further 
spend little in one form of 
energy, while students dis- 
burse another. Philosophies 
aside, these expenditures lead 
to one important savings - an 

EDITOR'S NOTE - A fringe 
benefit worthy of mentioning 
is the fact that modified 
travelling accompanied the 
modified week. Estimates 
showed Spring term students 
using $29,000 worth of 
gasoline less, putting little in 
the tank and more in the bank. 

Ga/leon guillotined 
Comber continues 

A favorite campus activity for many and one of long standing 
will not be around this year: The Galleon. 

The Galleon began as a yearbook many years ago, but the 
college outgrew the format for a yearbook and so it slowly 
evolved into a literary-news magazine, published at the end of 
the Fall and Winter terms. It existed'under the guidence of John 
Correll, and its staff was almost exclusively composed of the 
students of his Graphic Production class. 
Correll left the faculty of the college last year, and it seems that 
with him left the Galleon. 

The staff of the Beachcomber is sorry to see it go. We rather 
enjoyed the competition, as well as the opportunity to pick up a 
magazine packed with the creative ideas of JC students. 
Traditionally the Beachcomber does not accept any literary 
work (poetry, short stories, etc.) from students,but instead 
referred them to the Galleon office. 

That office is now occupied by our own advisor, Dr. Noble. 

Since the Beachcomber finds that it would be a shame to stifle 
the creativeness of students for lack of a medium of expression, 
we would like everyone to know that we will accommodate them as 
much as possible, and this term have decided to accept literary 

Anyone wishing to have his or her work published in the 
Beachcomber should contact the Feature Editor, Mike Chumney 
or the Contributing Editor, Celia Vock. If all else fails, try your 
luck with the Boss, Kevin Bair. We'll do what we can with the 
space we have. 

We have plenty of ideas of our own, but "we're all open to 
suggestion. Our one simple request is that poetry does not 
exceed 30 lines, and short stories not over 500 words. No 
anonymous work will be accepted, and not everything we 
receive will be printed. Also, we need all the photographers we 
can get! 

We hate to see the Galleon go, but we're not going to leave you 
standing out in the cold. Bring your work to us.

Applications are now being accepted inside 
the SAC lounge today through Sept. 24 for 
candidates interested in the JC student Senate, 
according to the Student Government 
Association (SGA) office. 

After campaigning, including advocatory 
speeches, runs from next Monday to Oct. 8, 
voting machines will be on the SAC patio the 
final day until 9:30 p.m. The Senators, elected 
proportionately to the college's population, will 
be under the executive direction of four new 

"Participating in SGA gives one a sense of 
accomplishment, along with meeting so many 
nice people. It's ideal if you're concerned in 
developing yourself ... you grow mentally," 
proclaimed hailing president Polly Young. 
"There is more to college than attending classes 
and studying. Education can be fun. Get 
involved for the experience, the sense of 
responsibility and friends, and personal growth 
that stems from taking part in activities. ' ' 

Aside from Polly, Bobby Cobb, Kimm Lathrop, 

and Steve Solieri hold the ^positions of 
vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, 

Ideas based on the student body's wants and 
needs are formulated by these officers and will 
then be presented to the Senate. Upcoming SGA 
plans include a ThanksgivingTurkey Bash, and A 
Christmas Homecoming picnic at adjacent John 
Prince Park. As with all measures, however, the 
legislative branch has the power to pass or veto 
any proposals. 

Financially, SGA "must get the most output 
for the least input, since campaigning monies 
are collected on an individual basis. In addition, 
the association needs the approval for their 
annual budget from the campus president, 
dean, and advisor. 

Although student awareness meetings 
scheduled on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. have 
prompted discussions and project ideas, 
improvement in PBJC government is desired. 
Commented Young, "we represent the 
students, we have the resources, but we need 
the manpower. "

The Student Activity Committee (SAC) is having a 
membership drive to Fill four seats on the board. 

SAC is a smaller version of Central Campus's SGA, whereas 
Central has over twenty, the North Campuses total membership 
is nine. The Committee consists of one full-time faculty member 
(Frank Barton, instructor of Mathematics, North Campus), and 
one Academic Administrator (Dr. Alan Johnston, Psychology 
instructor, North Campus), one Student Affairs Staff member 
who will act as Chairperson (John Jenkins, Counselor, North 
Campus), and six JC students who have a majority of their 
classes at JC-North . ; 

In SAC's recently revised Constitution, there is an amendment 
in which there will be four members of the previous year carried 
over into the next school year and the remaining two positions 
will be filled by students entering JC-North in the new school 
year. Unfortunately, this year they found themselves with two 
old members and four open positions. So, until September 17, 
applications will be accepted for membership. 

Besides being the decision making body of the North Campus, 
SAC also offers discount tickets for sporting events, and the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium. Every year they sponsor a 
Barbecue picnic for students with live entertainment. 

Additional applications can be attained from either the 45th 
Street Mobile office or the Gardens Center.

P7-7JWJM.-J New attitudes toward death 

I 4 ,' /1 1 1 I m * , byMikeChumney or situation. 

Bow/e /os/ng fame 
Cult's rock and roll 

Staff Writer 

It seems that ever since David Bowie came 
out with "Heroes" he has taken on an "I don t 
care' ' attitude, not really caring as to whether or 
not his music appeals to the general 
music-listening public or even his own fans for 
that matter. 

Prior to 1976 I was a confirmed Bowie-hater, 
not caring who his music appealed to because it 
didn't appeal to me. Nevertheless, with the 
arrival of "Station to Station", I thought, "Well 
David, maybe you're not so bad after all . 
When "Low" was released a year later I said, 
"so you're venturing into sci-fi again". And at 
the time I seriously thought his collaborations 
with Brian Eno were going to work, but now, 
I'm afraid they've reached the point of total 
absurdness. , 

The latest Bowie-Eno product is called 
"Lodger" and it definitely presents David in 
very poor form. For the most part the songs here 
are overworked and self-indulgent. To make 
matters worse they aren't even played that well. 
"Lodger" comes across as a "loose" album, so 
loose that it even violates all the rules of 

informality . , , t a 

Like most bad albums it does have its good 
points though. The opening cut "Fantastic 
Voyage" is rather a nice song; you might say 
it's "Space Oddity" gone to sea. "D.J.' and 
"Look Back in Anger" revive the album 

by Mike Chumney 

For the first time ever, a 
course about death and dying 
was offered in Spring II as part 
of the regular curriculum. 
Students showed great in- 
terest as enrollment for a 
summer session was high. The 
3 credit hour class was taught 
by Dr. Richard Yinger of the 
Social Science Department. 

There's no doubt that some 
readers are wondering why 
anyone would want to take a 
class in death and dying. 
There were a couple of 
reasons. It seems that some 
students had a keen interest in 
the material because it related 
to their major, such as 
nursing. Others took the class 
simply because it was 

with Lodger 
still strong 

somewhat but they'd revive the album more if 
they weren't so cluttered musically. 

"Repetition" is probably the only worthwhile 
cut, "Johnny is a man and he's bigger than 
you And he looks straight through you when 
you ask him how the kids are He'll get home 
around seven 'cause the Chevy's real old And 
he could have had a Cadillac if the school had 
taught him right". 

These two songs may be good but they fail to 
successfully save this album. It's too bad that 
Bowie has allowed himself to become so 
wrapped up in his own music because he could 
be enjoying it with everyone else. 

After my ears were numbed by the 
avant-garde complexity of "Lodger" I decided 
that it was time to listen to some good old 
fashioned music. An that's basically how Blus 
Oyster Cult's new album comes across. 
"Mirrors", to put it mildly, is a blast. The 
album opens with "Dr. Music", and instead of a 
guitar solo it contains a great harmonica solo. 
"The Great Sun Jester", "In Thee" and 
"Mirrors" are equally as good as they are done 
in the typical Cult manner that few survivors of 
the overwhelming disco deluge can match. 
"The Vigil", "I am the Storm" and "You're 
Not the One I was Looking For", also stand out 
on this brilliantly executed album that proves 
the Cult has a long way to go before they even 
begin to falter. On the whole, "Mirrors" is a 
welcome relief in this age of plastic banality. 

Streisand's a knock-out in Main Event 

by Bob Colip 

The "Main Event," starring 
Barbara Streisand and Ryan 
O'Neal, reunites the team of 
"What's Up Doc" in a 
self-proclaimed "Glove 
Story." Proving to be both 
entertaining and physically 
strenuous for both parties 
involved, this mid-summer 
block buster serves to further 
entrench Streisand as 
America's number one female 
box office attraction. 

Streisand, a notorious 
perfectionist, embroils the 
public in yet another calamity- 
bound, opposites-do-attract 
love affair between bankrupt 
perfume manufacturer and 
has-been prize fighter. Talk- 
ing in her now stylized 
non-stop verbiage, Streisand 
plays off O'Neal with the same 
zest portr— - d in their early 
70's con* hit. Slap stick 
humor ha a i^ng been in style 
and Streisand manages to 
employ the love-drama 
element as well. 

Ryan O'Neal's dead-pan 

timing further intensifies the 

complete hysteria surrounding 

the "Main Event." Forced 

back into the ring after a ten 

year layoff, O'Neal fears for 

his life since Streisand holds 

his contract, tax dodge she 

had invested in years before. 

Now that she's broke, a la 

crooked bookkeeper now living 

in South America, she intends 
to recoup some of the 
"training" money lost over 
the years. A net worth of 
somewhere around $60,000.

operates a driving school 
finally relents and hits the 
ropes. The standard courtship

The class started slowly, but 
as people became more 
familiar with one another, they 
started sharing personal 
feelings on death which 
stimulated group interaction. 
Dr. Yinger feels this is 
necessary for a class. It 
certainly was conducive to the 
learning experience in death 
and dying. 

different. But after the first 
class, all were fascinated by 
the topic. 

Only in recent years have 
subjects on this topic been 
taught in the schools and 
universities. As Dr. Yinger 
explains, "It's a movement 
whose time has come." 

The course emphasized the 

importance of learning to cope 

with the matter of death, both 

on an individual and social 

level. But as Yinger went on 

to say, "It's a class that looks 

at living as much as dying." , '. c - , A „i,i u~

Contributing Editor 

The things people do never ceases to 
amaze me. As a matter of fact, the only 
thing that I do that could possibly be 
classified as a hobby is "people- watch- 
ing." It's absolutely fascinating. 

They drive down the street singing 
along with the Top-40 radio station. 
They drool and burp after eating Steak 
Diane. They step on the backs of their 
tennis shoes, and they follow along 
with anything that's "in", any cause 
that's "here and now." 

In the beginning of my people 
watching days, I thought that the 
places to catch people at their absolute 
strangest were shopping malls and flea 
markets. But last May I found that to 
be wrong. The best place to watch 
people is at a protest rally, and being 
the crazy radical that I am, I picked a 
shopper to go to. It was the No-Nukes 
March on Washington Sponsored by 
the May 6 Coalition. 
I'll tell you, there were 75,000 people 
gathered on Capitol Hill protesting 
Atomic Power, and 99.9 percent of 

them were crazy. Not just radical 


There was a dog there dressed in a 
"No-Nukes" t-shirt. 

There was a man there dressed as 
"death". No kidding. All decked out in 
a black cape. . .and a skeleton mask. 

I was frightened to venture up the 
hill and sit with the crowd, because I 
had a gut feeling that some attendant 
at Bellevue had lost his mind for a 
minute and released the inmates from 
the hospital's east wing. Not believing 
it, I took refuge behind my camera and 
pretended I had showed up only to take 
a few pictures for the sake of recording 
a piece of history. After all, it was the 
largest organized and peaceful march 
on the Capitol since the Anti- Vietnam 
protests of the late 1960's. Most of the 
participants at this rally were probably 
veterans of the anti-war cause, too. I 
can swear I saw someone wearing a 
"hell no, we won't go" button. Or 
maybe it was "hell no, we won't 

The speakers at the rally did manage 
to make me stop and think for a minute 
with all their facts and figures about 
atomic energy and nuclear warheads. 
People like Ralph Nader always make 
me think. Hey, would you drive a 1971 
Pinto? Think about it. 

But it wasn't only Nader. It was also 
Jane Fonda, Tom Hayden, Barry 
Commoner, Bella Abzug, Dick Gregory

and a host of others. They kept 
repeating how the accident at Three 
Mile Island could have been bad 
enough for the nation to lose the entire 
state of Pennsylvania. I was shocked. 
Not Pennsylvania! That's the only 
place in the world I know where you can 
still venture into a corner bar and get a 
draft beer and a shot of Amaretto for 50 
cents. What would I do without 

There were other fascinating people; 
we'll call them normal people. I haven't 
yet figured out how they all managed to 
sit on the hill for six hours without 
getting up once to go to the bathroom. 

Maybe they were captivated by the 
music. It was top-shelf entertainment. 
Joni Mitchell, Jackson Brown, John 
Sebastian, Graham Nash and Dan 
Fogelberg, to name a few. Not bad, and 

these musicians have since banded 
together to form an organization called 
' ' MUSE, ' ' or Musicians United for Safe 

Maybe they were spellbound by Kurt 
Vonnegut't brilliant and serious words 
on the subject. "I hate the 
government," he said. "They're grimy 
little monkeys, and I hate them." Go 
get 'urn, Kurt. 

The whole thing was really terrific, 
and it caused me to re- evaluate the best 
places to find weird people. It also 
might have been the event that caused 
me to downgrade myself from 
"radical" to "liberal." I was solicited 
to join every off-the-wall organization 
from the Socialist Workers Party to 
"Stop the War Before It Gets Started," 
and I don't think I'm that crazy. . .yet. 

Wheels of California catching on 

by Kathie Rooks 
Staff Writer 

Pull on the thickest socks you can find, strap on 
those knee pads, slip into a pair of rollerskates 
and in moments you'll be flying through the air 
with the greatest of ease. For beginners, that 
flight may very well be a short trip from a 
somewhat shaky standing position into a 
tangled ball on the ground! (That's why there 
are knee pads.) 

But aon t tret, skating' s not as dangerous as 
it looks. Falling down is half the fun, in 
addition to being an integral part of learning to 

The "roller rage" that has captured 
California and New York City is making its 
debut in South Florida. Here in West Palm 
Beach, the opening of "Roller Skate Scam", 
an outdoor skate rental shop, has spurred a 
rash of daring individuals to take to the 
highway.. -on skates, of course. No longer does 
Mom cart the kids to the local roller rink to sit 
sipping coffee while they skate. Mom is rolling 
along, too. 

Why has this ' 'Roller Revolution" just recently 
caught fire? Probably due to the introduction 
of outdoor skating. Those of you who skated as 

a youngster will certainly remember the 
adjustable metal skates that you strapped on 
your shoes. They had either wooden or metal 
wheels and any contact with a stick or a pebble 
on the sidewalk would send you soaring, head 
over heels, leaving your adjustable metal 
skates back on the sidewalk with the pebble. 

Thanks to modem technology and new 
materials we now have wheels made of 
urethane, a man-made substance that rolls 
much smoother and glides over most of the 
surfaces outdoor skaters will encounter. 
Stopping also, has been made simpler and 
safer. Instead of grabbing a pole, a rail, a brick 
wall we have rubber stoppers at the toe of the 

Rollerskatinghas developed into many areas: 
trick skating, racing, disco, marathon and 
aerial skating to mention a few. Suprised? 
Skating is fast becoming big business with a 
variety of skating styles to try. You may not 
have visions of grandeur of flying through the 
air to land skating in an emptied swimming 
pool as Aerial skaters do, but freewheeling 
out-of-doors has got to be one of the finest 
feelings around. So grab your gear and get 
that skating sensation. 


Ram falling . . . 

Pieces of my brain crawling 

To escape through my ears 

Or are they tears 

Trying to wash away painful 


low am I to discern 
When 1 can no longer see clearly 
Into the windows of that world 


Attempts to clean away the 

corruption and disillusionment 

fogging the crystal windows 

Have been in vain 

Alas, the clouds are clearing 

The torrential downpour of sorrow 


Into pleasant nothingness 

My brain experiencing a state of

For I Am their cosmic messenger

Edward M. Eissey, PBJC 
president and the college 
presidential staff. 

"Weekend college is the only 
opportunity for many people 
who work to attend classes. 
We are very excited to meet 
the needs of the citizens", 
remarked Dr. Eissey.

'People Believing in Jesus Christ 






If someone had asked me what it meant to be a 
Christian a few years ago, 1 probably would have said, 
"It means going to Church (Mass) on Sundays and holy 
days"-! am a Catholic. About four years ago, however, 
the Lord showed me that it was an everyday adventure 
with Jesus. 

Through the born-again experience, I came to know 
Jesus as a personal Friend. Now the adventure is to 
continue learning about Him through Bible studies, 
fellowship with Christians in all denominations and 
prayer. My faith is no longer something 1 say I believe 
but it is a great love for a continuing adventure with 
Jesus Christ. 

Through the teaching of the Holy Spiorit, the 
. r, riptures have become a lot clearer to me. Prayer is a 
i uiogue rather than a monologue. And life is exciting 
for I never know just what is going to happen next as 1 
share the love Jesus has given me for the world-and 
especially for those around me in school and work. 

Many Catholics are coming to this awareness of a 
Personal Lord and Saviour. Just a few weeks ago, 
more than 3,000 Catholics met on the campus of St. 
Leo's University for a weekend of prayer, fellowship 
and teaching. Priests and bishops, layity and friends 
from other Churches discovered exciting oneness in our 
Lord Jesus Christ.

Beachcomber sports are 
coming at you again. 

So you thought you were 
really rid of usedn't you? But 
we are back again, just like 
one of those colds that just 
won't go away. We hang in 
there and drive people crazy 
(sometimes ourselves). 

But, since only two of us are 
back from last year, let me 
introduct this year's sports 

Bill Meeks - This is Bill's 
third term here at JC. He is a 

journalism major, and prefers 
to cover women's events. Bill 
graduated from Palm Beach 
Gardens High School. His 
favoriate sport is football, 
where he spent three years 
playing at Palm Beach 
Gardens. Bill and I are the 
only returnees in the sports 

Ross Sanders - This is 
Ross's first term here at JC. 
Ross came here from 
Matawan, New Jersey, where 
he graduated from Cedar 

Ridge High School. Ross wrote 
sports for the Cedar Ridge 
High School paper, so he 
should do well here. Ross's 
favorite sport is baseball, 
which he played in high 
school. Because of his 
interest in baseball, Ross will 
probably be covering varsity 
baseball for us. 

Jim Hayward - This is Jim's 
first term here at JC. Jirn 
graduated from John I. 
Leonard High School, where 
he was the sports editor for the 

"Knight Times" in his senior 

Rodney Cook - This is my 
second term here. My first 
was very interesting in that I 
was able to be co-sports editor 
for the Beachcomber. I 
graduated from Bethesda- 
Chevy Chase High School in 
Befhesda, Maryland. My 
favorite sport is golf, which 
along with basketball, I played 
during high school. 

Our staff will be able to do a 
fine job. As you have seen, 

each of us has a great deal of 
previous background in 
sports. We also have a good 
deal of previous writing 
experience on our staff. I am 
looking forward to the new 
school year, and I hope our 
readers are too. 

So, there you have it. I 
believe that we will have a lot 
to offer this term. We will try 
to present a varied assortment 
of topics to make the sports 
page, more appealing to

Though the baseball season is still months away, many of our

Intramurals' new face 

Steve Perez and Billy [Hooker] Shearouse will be teaching a 
Karate class sponsored by the intramural board. The class will 
be having a meeting on Wednesday, September 19, at 2:00, in 
room 6 in the gym. 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Writer 

There are five intramural 
programs open to students at 
Palm Beach Junior College 
beginning this week. The

volleyball, bowling, karate, 
and a jogging course . 

Sign-ups for all sports take 
place this week in the 
gymnasium. You may go

sign up sheets located in the 


This is the first semester 
being in charge of intramurals

forward to large responses 

towards the programs avail- 
able to students, staff and 

Bowling is the most popular 
of the events. Anyone 
interested in joining bowling,

Wednesday at 4 p.m., at 
Major League Lanes. 
Students, faculty and staff are

The only non-coed sport is 
flag football. You may either 
sign up at the gym or you can 
call Rob Bryde at 968-2030. 

A jogging course is offered

by Bill Meeks 
Sports Writer 

Due to a lack of funding and 
no scholarships being alloted 
to players, it was decided that 
volleyball will be dropped for 
this year. This was announced 
after a board meeting held by 
JC president Dr. Eissey. 

There were a flurry of 
changes that occured before 
the scheduled opener on 

September 18. First, there was 
a change in coaches. Nancy 
Weber replaced Sharon 
Whittesley as volleyball coach. 
Then there was the problem of 
getting players. After a week 
and a half of tryouts only four 
girls had expressed interest to 
play. Five or more girls came 
out to bring the total to nine. 

JC atheletic director Tom 
Mullins feels that due to the 
lack of interest shown by 

female atheletes for the sport, 
there should be a way to make 
it more attractive to girls so 
that they would want to come 
out for the team. 

Due to volleyball's can- 
cellation for this year, Mr. 
Mullins thinks that there 
should be a closer look at the 
sport to see wether or not it is 
justifiable to retain it as a 
sport here at the college.

UF proposal brings "optimism" 

An undisclosed source has 
informed the Beachcomber 
that today's PBJC United 
Faculty bargaining session 
slated for 3 p.m. will carry 
"an air of optimism" by 
presenting before further 
mediation "a modified pro- 
posal that tries for a better 
deal to faculty members with 
the most experience." 

Although the details remain 
unreleased, the union mem- 
bership approved last 
Wednesday to go back to the 
table with a possible agree- 
ment. The administration, 
headed by Dr. Elizabeth 
Erling, Dean of Special 
Services, has awaited the 

clearance for renegotiation. 

"I think they want an 
agreement. 1 know we want an 
agreement," remarked UF 
President Trinette Robinson, 
' 'we are very close. ' ' 

The union, which makes up 
40% of the total budget at the 
college, had previously asked 
for a 7% salary increase and 
an extension in increments for 
their representative body of 
full-time faculty. An agree- 
ment to raise the increments 
by 7% has already been 
tentatively reached, but to 
those eligible for remun- 
eration at the established 

Dr. Edward M. Eissey, 

PBJC President, who has 
taken an active interest in the 
bargaining, would "personally 
like to see the faculty receiving 
a twenty to twenty-five 
percent salary increase," but 
stands by the claim that even 
the 7% proposal is fiscally 

The increments, however, 
based on a diminishing pay 
raise as years of employment 
increase, may be hiked from a 
range of $310 to $567 up wards 
at $360 to $607. 

Whatever events occur 
today, the Beachcomber has 
learned from one source that 
mediator Harold Mills was 
"delighted" that at least his 

presence could be delayed. 

Such a brighter outlook has 
prompted both sides to push 
previous misunderstandings 
aside for the time-being. 
Several fringe benefits, which 
weren't included in contract 
dealings, have been sub- 
stantially resolved. Problems 
, with tuition free classes for 
teachers and their framilies, 
for instance, brought tempor- 
ary discontent. 

"The probelm wasn't that 
we didn't appreciate the 
courses," commented Mrs. 
Robinson on the subject. "The 
problem was the way it was 
approached. We found out we 
couldn't do it until the last day 

of registration, and if any 
space was still available. Hele 
we had rising expectations, 
and my people crashed. But I 
know it wasn't deliberate in 

Additionally, the UF has 
created a committee to assist 
in the effort toward the 
millage referendum nearly six 
months away. 

"We feel the faculty will not 
only be cooperative, but 
enthusiastic," Dr. Eissey 
stated recently. 

Amplified the UF President, 
"We will work together for the 
good of the college and its

BOT begins initial 
Fall term activities 

,> 'v 



The Palm Beach Junior College District Board 
of Trustees met in regular session last 
Wednesday, Sept. 19, the first since the start of 
the Fall Term. 

Although delivered unceremoniously, the 
agenda covered a span of affairs, including a 
presentation on the status of Data Processing by 
Director Jack Kelly and Engineering Chairman 
Jennings B. Rader. 

"I want to remove the computer mystique 
from Data Processing," noted Mr. Kelly before 
the Board, "so that the administrative staff 
won't be afraid of using them. ' ' 

Kelly and Rader also pointed out the 
improvement in handling registration printouts 
and documentation. 

Other matters discussed were the approval of 
a part-time coordinator of weekend and evening 
classes, an agreement between JC and Edison 

Community College for certain data processing 
services, renewal of the Non-Financial 
Comprehensive Training Act (CETA), for the 
new fiscal year, the recommendations of 
personnel items, awarded bid on the cooling 
tower, and authorization of a resolution 
requesting the issuance in the amount of 
$175,000 for the purpose of financing Capital 
Outlay Projects. 

One topic that received opposition was the 
noncompetitive bid on the purchase of a starter 
for an Air Conditioning Chiller System at a cost 
of $3,200. Dick Jones, head of purchasing, plans 
to investigate. 

Prior to the meeting's close, it was announced 
that the Allied Health Building will celebrate 
open house Oct. 7 between 2 and 4 p.m. 
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies will highlight the 



SGA election apathy-plagued 

"Our grand business undoubtedly is, not to see what lies dimly 
at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand. " 

Health Fair upcoming 

by John Eades 
Staff Writer 

More than 20 health 
agencies will be participating 
in a five day Health Fair 
sponsored free of charge by 
JC, scheduled to be held 
October 15-19, 9 a.m. -2 p.m. 
in the SAC lounge. 

"All of the agencies at the 
fair will have their own booth 
to distribute information, 
answer questions and pass out 
pamphlets and biochures," 
stated campus nurse Mary 
Cannon, directoi of the fair. 

Edna Martm of the Palm 

Beach Blood Bank explained 

' that the BJoodmobile will be 

on hand to leceive donations 

-on October 19. 

The Palm Beach Optojnetnc 
Society will do eye screening 

on Thursday, October 18th, 
and fact filled literature will be 
passed out by the Alcohol and 
Drug Abuse Council. 

Other agencies at the fair 
will be the American Cancer 
Society, the American Lung 
Association, the Palm Beach 
County Kidney Association 
and the Red Cross. 

Special interest booths at 
the fair include the Palm 
Beach Dietic Society, the 
Sexual Assault Assistance 
Project and the Women's 
Medical Clinic. 

PBJC participants at the fair 
will be the Dental Health 
Majois, Phi Theta Kappa 
junior college honorary 
fraternity, and the Student 
Government Association. 

As the senatorial application 
draws nearer to deadline and 
campaigning gets underway, 
SGA officials encountered 
personal absences and student 
apathy in their attempt to 
generate involvement. 

With approximately 10 
applicants approved thus far, 
an illness to President Polly 
Young and a rigorous schedule 
occupying Vice President 
Bobby Cobb have hindered 
regular procedures. Unstable 
office hours last week created 
difficulty for the few in- 
terested in running. 

"My phone had been out of 
order for a few days, so I know 

it was tough to reach me," 
commented Cobb, "but now 
we'll be having regular office 

"When you're ill, it can't be 
helped," remarked Dean 
Robert Moss, "and auxiliary 
activities take a backseat as 
everything piles up on you at 
the same time." 

The dean also expressed 
concern in the small number of 
applications. "This is the third 
or fourth time this has 
happened in recent years, and 
it's unfortunate, because we 
had and have some very good 
people trying to do their

has worked closely with SGA 
officers, appointed onh a 
week before last the ass> -i- 
ation'snew advisor. Guidance 
counselor Donald W. Cook, 
although not settled into the 
post, anticipates his part- 
icipation to be an enjoyable 

Despite the setbacks, those 
seeking a Senate seat, 
possessing a 2.2 GPA, and 
carrying a minimum of 12 
credit hours can still fill out an 
application sheets before 1:30 
p.m. today. According to 
Vice-President Cobb, three 
quarters of those who run will 
be elected. 

Maxwell departs 
Science dept. 

PBJC lost a 14 year teaching veteran last 
week with the departure of Mr. Alan Maxwell, a 
member of the Science department. 

Mr. Maxwell earned his Master's degree in 
Biology from the University of Virginia. He then 
completed two years of doctoral graduate work 
in repioductive biology and biophysics at the 
Medical College of Cornell University in New 

Mr, Maxwell states that in the future he will 
be doing private research in marine biology and 
will not resume teaching.

( Editorial ) 

OohNooo! Mr. Bill 

Student complaints voiced 
in college newspapers have 
long been a traditional part of 
the editorial page. Comments 
ranging from hard sell to 
soapbox styles, however, are 
generally taken with that little 
grain of salt. There are 
exceptions, and one which has 
swept my desk recently bears 
publishing. The writer, now 
back in New York City, came 
across with the authority of a 
man who has had his heart 
broken. ..literally: 

Dear editor, 

As a short-lived student at 
PBJC, I believe I can express 
the feelings of other boys and 
girls on campus about 
situations which can do more 
harm than good. Take 
registration four weeks ago, 
for example. Bring almost 
nine inches tall and pro- 
pagated from Play-Doh, I can 
tell you standing in line 
several hours was rather 
difficult. I wouldn't have 
minded it so much, though, if 
my feet had not kept melting 

to the ground and making me 
lose my place. 

I was okay once inside the 
air-conditioned building, until 
I met a gentleman who wanted 
very much to help me. He was 
Registrar Sluggo, and he 
informed me that the classes I 
liked weren't available, and I 
would have to be processed in 
order to change my schedule. I 
didn't mind changing, but 


kind of hurt me. 

The next thing I remembered 
was flapping out of a terminal 
with "MWF" stamped on my 

When paying my higher 
tuition fee went so easily, I 
thought things were going to 
be swell, making friends and 
all that. Before I went to my 
classes, I decided to check on 
my dog, Spot, out by the 
parking lot. I couldn't find him 
at first, but I was surprised to 
meet the Registrar's brother, 
Security Guard Sluggo, and 
what he had to say really took 
away my breath. He advised 
me that animals must be 
ejected from campus, because 
it is the rule. Well, I've never 

disobeyed the law, so I didn't 
really mind. Spot, though, 
preferred not to have been 
slingshot on to Congress 
Avenue during rush hour. 

If that wasn't enough, I'd 
have to say that having the 
Registrar's and Security 
Guards cousin, Professor 
Sluggo, as my first instructor, 
was the straw that broke my 
fragile frame. Getting "hit" 
with homework was bad 
enough, but needling me 
about being late in front of my 
classmates wasn't too kind. 
Not only that, I'm still 
suffering lead-poisoning from 
his pencil in my arm. 

All in all, it was a pretty bad 
experience here. I just regret 
never having the chance to 
support the campus clubs, 
activities, and associations. I 
hope that students are aware 
of these organizations and use 
their involvement in putting 
their foot down for justice... 
uh , I mean . . . Oooooooo

To the Editor, 

Why has PBJC discontinued 
the fantastic idea and program 
of guest speakers? 

Last year, we were exposed 
to such personalities as Dick 
Gregory and The Amazing 
Kreskin, who in my opinion, 
were fabulous! It also provides 
an opportunity which is rarely 
presented to the community.

speakers have never been 
discontinued, they just fade 
away. The Beachcomber has 
learned from acting Vice 
President of Student Affairs 
Robert Moss that a meeting to 
set up an Assembly 
Committee will occur this 
Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2:30 
p.m. at the Dean's office. The 
committee will formulate the 
contents of programs, which 
may include guest speakers, 
for campus activities. 

"We are interested in three 
students who are willing to 
participate on the 

committee," added Moss. 

The American college student is no longer necessarily the 
18-21 year-old. Today, 48% of the students are over 21, with an 
included 10.4% of the student body over 35 years of age. Within 
these figures are included those who retired and are fulfilling a . 
desire to go to college. • : 

The new majority is indeed a significantly different student 
population, largely representing adults over the college age. 

There are differences between needs, motivations and 
abilities for each group of students in their quest for higher 
education. The traditional college student is influenced by 
family, school and community in their decisions that he or she 
might make about attending institutions of higher education. 

In contrast, the new majority student wants to be treated as an 
adult and be self-directing, as well as respected by those in 

The new majority is used to action-oriented learning 
techniques' and wants credit for life experiences and 
community projects. 

Adult learners want to move ahead in areas which have 
meaning to them. 

Four points emerge regarding responsiveness of the 
university to the new majority: 

• Lifelong education must be student centered. 

• The new majority demands access to learning for greater 
periods of time, quite often throughout the life span. 

• The institution should incorporate experiences of the new 
majority in developing academic policy and long range program 

• Lifelong learning cannot rely solely on inefficient or traditional 

Requiring a new majority student to alter the thinking of 
accuracy and replace it with speed of performance and recall is 
foreign and creates problems in the learning situation. 

However, research shows that accuracy of performance can 
outweigh speed and recall fn students of increased age.

JC-Job effort 

A Cooperative Education 
Program is offered by Palm 
Beach Junior College this term 
in order to expose students to 
the real world of work within 
their fields. 

Not all homework is done at 
home by PBJC students 
participating in the new 
program. Much of it is 
on-the-job experience. 

"Besides getting valuable 
job experience in the field of 
his or her choice, the students 
receive salaries and college 
credit toward their degree or 
certificate work," Dr. Eissey 
pointed out. 

Students take what they 
learn in the classroom and 
apply it to their everyday job 
situations. "This gives 
students a realistic look at 
their fields, and enhances 
what they have learned in 
class," Dr. Suttle, coordinator 
of the program, stated. 

"Students may find that 
what they might have 
originally thought was a good 
career choice isn't what they 
want after all," Suttle added. 
"I feel it is better to find this 
out early in their college years, 
rather than waiting until they 
have already completed their 
degree work. " 

The program is supported 
by funds of $77,805, both by 
the federal government and 

Some of the fields included 
in the co-op program are: Art, 
Business, Social Science, 
Hotel-Food Sevice, and 

According to Suttle, the 
program appears to be 
working out well for the 
students. "So far we've had 
nothing but good results," he 
remarked confidently. 

"Since I have been in the 
program I have had much

Sprain-proof skating 
Tips for beginners 

Now that you're ready to find out why people everywhere are 
skating by trying it yourself, here are a few pointers that will 
help you to stay in an upright position. 

First of all, one must realize that skating is the opposite of 
walking, so don't try to walk in your skates. When you walk, one 
leg always goes ahead (in front) of the other leg. When 
roller-skating, you have to bend your knees, push the skates off 
the floor and out to the side of your body one at a time. Push to 
the right-roll, push to the left-roll, and so on. This motion is not 
as choppy as it sounds. Actually, your legs keep moving in a 
continuous pushing and rolling movement from side to side. 
Once you are on the skates, this will make a lot more sense and 
you .will get the feel of the skates themselves. 

Now that you know how to move your legs, we will go on to 
balance, that is, to restrain your body's desire to topple over I 
Keep your knees bent and your muscles relaxed. If you still feel 
a bit wobbly, hold your arms out to your side. Circus tight-rope 
walkers use their outstretched arms for balance, so' there is no 
need for you to feel like "Charles Clutz." Be sure and look 
straight ahead and keep your head up. Like driving a car, you

Led Zeppelin continues to soar 

by BUI Meredith 
Staff Writer 

At long last, after three years of waiting, the 
new Led Zeppelin album "In Through the Out 
Door" is available. 

Upon its arrival, I was very anxious to see the 
critics' response in the- major American music 
magazines, but none have yet to respond. And 
maybe none will, for there is very little to 

' 'In Through the Out Door' ' is an album full of 
surprises. One is the strange album 
covers- --there are four or six different 
ones— but the main surprise lies in the music. 
On "Fool in the Rain", drummer John Bonham 
switches gears from slow offbeat to highspeed 
reggae, complete with Carribean style piano 
and whistle. An absolute shock is the 
country-rocker "Hot Dog", on which 
keyboard/bassist John Paul Jones plays fine 
ragtime piano as guitarist extraordinaire Jimmy 
Page hot dogs his guitar. Robert Plant pitches 
in, too. His Elvis Presley-ish vocal on this cut is 

with its sounding keyboards and tempo changes 
is sure to become a Zeppelin classic. 

The biggest overall surprise of this album is 
that it is not guitar-dominated. Each of the four 
members make significant contributions, but 
John Paul Jones stands out. Jones wrote most of 
the material, and his keyboard playing, 
especially on "Suarez," "Hot Dog," and 
"Carouselambra," is phenomenal. 

Page and Plant dominate the two mellow cuts 
which end the album. Page's flickering guitar 
the melodic ballad "All My Love" is a

delight, and Plant's crooning highlights 
Bonham's blues beat and Page's power cords on 
the grat blues number, "I'm Gonna Crawl. This 
cut brings to mind the blues classic, "Since I've 
Been Loving You •' ' from Led Zeppelin TU." 

The critics have feasted on past Zeppelin 
albums, saying that they were "aimless" and 
"monotonous. They will find "In Through the 
Out Door' ' hard to chew on, for this may be the 
most diverse Zeppelin album ever ; and 
possibly the best. 

For Zeppelin enthusiasts, this album is a 
must. For non-Zeppelin enthusiasts, you'll _

Feature Editor 

The advertisement for the 
pew Muppet movie immed- 
iately grabbed my attention 
■vvlien it first made a showing: 
* * IVTore entertaining than 
jjiirnanly possible! " 

I thought that to be a strong 
claim, even though there were 
a score of Hollywood hangers- 
cri and a few current 
personalities such as Steve 
jyfartin, Mel Brooks, Paul 
VVlHiams and Richard Pryor. 

Wot being of Sesame Street

appreciation of Jim Henson 
and his Muppets. Expecting 

Hurricane David brought on the blues 

by Celia Vock 
Contributing Editor 

I found out a few things 
about myself when Hurricane 
David was whipping through 
the Palm Beaches, knocking 
over power lines and bending 
all the palm trees. These are 
not easy things for me to 
admit, as I normally regard 
myself as a sensible, charm- 
ing, witty individual with the 
ability to carry on an 
intelligent conversation. 

But that's the way it goes, 
and I'm going to confess. 

To start with, I found that 
without electricity I am a 
complete bore. I had friends at 
my house for the 24 hours 
during which we couldn't -go 
outside with any hope of 
returning uninjured. They 
played a lot of cards. I don't 
play cards. Boring. I don't talk 
about „ cards, either. 

Another thing is that I can 
become easily frustrated. 
After about two hours of 
watching people play cards 
with no hope of joining, I 
decided to entertain them by 
playing my guitar. I 
immediately proceeded to 
snap the G string. Frustrating. 
So my friends began 
reading dimestore novels. 

I tried again to liven things 
up by reading them Allen 
Ginsberg's "America." They 
didn't like it—or they weren't 
listening. Frustrated again, so 
I decided to try and create 
lunch-. The menu choices 
consisted of peanut butter, 
tuna fish or day-old cheese- 
cake. Okay, now what? The 
only music available was 
transistorized AM rock, and 
the garbage was beginning to 

Just about this time I got 
stuck on algebra homework 
program 102. Terrific. 

And the phone kept ringing 
from endless parties all over 
town that I should have gone 
to and didn't. I thought we 
were the only people in town 
sitting around commented on 
eachother's fault's and weak- 
nesses—like not having 
enough sense to go to those 

But the most important f^ c ^ 
thing I learned about myself is t«at , 
to follow my first intuitions. 
Somehow I managed to talk 
myself out of catching a flight 
to Atlanta for two days of good 
ole Southern hospitality. You 
can bet the next time a 
hurricane comes, the only 
place anyone will be able to 
reach me will be somewhere in 
Georgia, mint julep in hand. 

human-like character 
. as corny as it sounds, 
,tlxey truly come to life. 

Most of the attention 
focuses on the Muppets. The 
human personalities play brief 
supporting roles which last no 
more than a scene in most 

The movie revolves around 
Kermit the Frog, who is 
persuaded by a movie agent to 
make his fortune as a film star 
in Hollywood. He leaves his 
swamp and heads for the West 
Coast picking up a delightful 
collection of friends along the 
way, such as Bozzy Bear, Miss 
Piggy and Ralph the Dog. 

As Kermit makes his way to 
the west, he runs into a 
ruthless restaurant owner who 
wants Kermit for purposes of 
advertising his chain of (get 
this) "Doc Hopper's Fried 
Frogleg Dinners. " 

Naturally, Kermit ' is 
appalled and tries to get away 
from the persistent business- 
man. The chase is on. 

Kermit and his friends 
succeed in thwarting Doc 
Hopper and eventually make 
their fortune in Hollywood. As 
simple as the plot may be, and 

as child-oriented the 
characters, this movie has 
something for everyone. 

In one scene, Doc Hopper's 
assistant discovers the extent 
of his boss' greedy plans. He 
makes a firm stand, swearing 
to help foil the frog-napping. 
' "This is a moral decision and I 
intend to stand by it!" he 
screamed. Doc Hopper roared 
back, "I'll double your 
percentage!" Immediately the 
assistant replied, "I'll do it." 
So much for human moral 

In a final showdown with 
Hopper, Kermit makes an 
impassioned plea for reason, 
logic, and understanding to 
prevail. He begs Hopper to let 
him and his friends go free. 
He puts his fate entirely in the 
greedy businessman's hands, 
trusting him with his life. It 
seems as though Doc Kopper 
would have to give in to logic 
and goodwill, but he looks up 
and snarls... "shoot him!" So 
much for goodwill and logic. 

I get the feeling that Henson 
is saying something about 

human personalities, and may 
be showing us why he created 
the fantasy Muppet characters 
to begin with. 

It's a fun movie for all, it 
should make most laugh, and 
perhaps even the cynics will 

be charmed. 

"More entertaining than 
humanly possible?" Their 
advertisement might have 
been meant as a play on 
words, but it's true no matter 
how you look at it.

Campus supplies facilities to the handlcappec Mu ||, n8 enthusiastic about upcoming sports year 

In recognizing the needs of 
the handicapped student PBJC 
is undergoing renovations in 
its outlook, in its teaching 
methods, in its programs and 
in its exterior. All these 
changes aie evident this year. 

"As an institution, we have 
taken a progressive stance on 
behalf of the handicapped 
student; not as a legal 
requirement, but as a moral 
commitment, '" stated PBJC 
President, Dr. Edward M. 
Eissey. "Toward tb> end, I 
signed an Assurance of 
Compliance with Section 504 

of the Rehabilitation Act of 
1973 (as amended); which 
assumes that the college will 
not discriminate in its 
programs or activities." It is 
this new outlook that has lead 
to many changes. 

Many educational aids are 
available to the handicapped 
on campus. These include 
special aids such as talking 
calculators that emit an 
electronic voice to indicate 
what number is being punched 
and what operation is being 
performed. Braille textbooks 
and Talking Books are in the 

Night classes increase 

For more than just a few, 
the problem of attending 
college and wotking full or 
part-time has been solved. 
The moon may be over Miami, 
but at PBJC and institutions 
elsewhere around the country, 
evening classes have been the 
encouragement to those who 
desire an education by 
avoiding listless nights. 

Evening attendance has 
risen to 4013, up 150 enrollees 
from last semester. Besides 
employment responsibilities, 
there are several other reasons 
for the upswing. 

"Night courses are three 
hours in one night. Some 
students just prefer that to one 
hour at a time," offered 
Charles Graham, campus 

Evening student James 
Poole agrees with Graham's 
attitude, but for a slightly 

different advantage. "By 
going to class once a week," 
he said, "you have more time 
to do things in the afternoon. ' ' 

Frank Leahy, one of the 
several teachers that instructs 
night courses as well as 
daytime schedules, directs an 
acting class on moonlit 

"Night courses give the 
opportunity to more people in 
the community to participate. 
The three hour span is better 
for acting exercises." 

Evening instructions run 
from 7 to 10 p.m. on most 
weeknights. Besides the 
central campus, classes are 
offered at various locations in 
West Palm Beach, Riviera 
Beach, North Palm Beach and 
Palm Beach Gardens. Gen- 
erally, the same curriculum is 
taught as in the day, covering 
the same material. 

campus libiary along with the 
Pelco Visual Aid, which 
enlarges reading material. 

A typing course for the blind 
is being offered which is 
described by John Townsend, 
Co-ordinator of Continuing 
Education, as a course that 
will give them a means to 
communicate. ' ' William Flory, 
a speech instructor at PBJC 
assists students with speech 
and hearing problems. Be- 
sides these courses, a sign 
language course is being 
offered for people who wish to 
communicate with deaf 

people, and for physical 
activity, wheelchair basketball 
is being offered. 

In addition to the educ- 
ational aids, there are special 
programs for the handi- 
capped. The Arts Program, 
which instructs students in 
music, literature and painting, 
is one such program. South 
Campus offers a program to 
develop basic skills for the 
mentally and physically 
handicapped. These programs 
give the students a sense of 
self- worth, commented one 
faculty member. 

As for exterior renovatit 
accessibility seems to be 
key. Sidewalk ramps h. 
been added. After the r 
elevators are completed int 
Humanities and Social Sdei 
Buildings, every building,

He thought that the school had 
'a great recruiting year, getting 
i^ome of the best athletic talent 
in the West Palm Beach area 
to attend our school. 

Mullins was then asked to 

comment on the individual 
varsity sports. "The golf 
teams are good and bad. Good 
in that it looks like the girls 
team will again be able to 
contend for the national title 
and bad because there aren't 
any eligible for the men's 

"Our tennis teams should 
do fairly well because we have 
recruited some good local 
talent to go along with our 
returning players. ' ' 

The basketball team has 
four returnees for Coach Joe 
Ceravolo and Mullins is very 
optimistic on the team's 
changes this year. He hopes 
they can repeat their season of 
two years ago when the Pacers 
participated in the national 
championship tournament. 

Mullins has very high hopes 
for the baseball squad. The 
team is coming off a year of 
being ranked number one in 
junior college competition. 
This year eighty would-be 
players showed up to try their 
hand at making the squad and 
Coach Dusty Rhodes expects 
to have another good season 
when it rolls around.

"Charlemagne, Caesar, Alexander and

by force, Jesus of JXazarth conquered

"Even those who have renounced 
Christianity and attack it, in their 
inmost being still follow the Christ- 
ian ideal, for hitherto neither their 
subtlety nor the ardor of there hearts 
has been able to create a higher idea) 
of man and of virtue than the ideal 
given by Christ of old." 

"No revolution that has ever taken 
place in society can be compared 
to that which has been produced by 
by the words of Jesus Christ." As

he's done yet. However, he 
has made a radical departure 
from his old album theses- 
why? He is a born again

Miss America claims that two miracles from God have 
radically changed her life. Her left leg was crushed during an 
automobile accident in 1968 and doctors attending her told her 
that she would never walk again. On Oct. 21, 1974, she sat 
quietly while about 300 believers prayed for her 
healing— especially that the shorter left leg would be restored to 
normal. While she watched as people prayed, Miss Prewitt saw 
the left leg grow the needed two inches. This answer to prayer 
strengthened her song-writing testimony. 

Winning the Miss America Pagent was the second miracle in 
Miss Prewitt's life. And she wants to give all thanks to God in 
any way she can. If she achieves the doctorate in music from 
Juilliard School of Music by using the $20,000 scholarship 
money, Miss America 1980 will continue to make the Word of 
God known to others in every way she can.

if you see people trying to sell

Intramural news 

The defenses took a beating as the R, B. Big Boys defeated 
the Scrogang 44-40, to win the opening game of the PBJC 
intramural flag football season. 

Mike Talton led the winners with a kickoff return and a punt 
return for touchdowns and Quarterback Joe Simpson had his 
hand in on four touchdowns. 

The Scrogang's captain, who would not reveal his identity, 
attributed the loss to ' 'Too much decent food and too much skirt 
chasing. " All of which left his team in a weakened condition. 

We of the Beachcomber will once again flex our somewhat 
messed up and misused muscles to once again do battle in 
furious competition. We will try to do better than our 
predecessors last year, the Nads. 

We have some writers who think they can play a little football. 
(Probably very little) The name of the team once again is the 
Nads. Our team captain is bill Branca, or "Billy Joe" to those 
who know him. 

The other members of the team include "Hot Rod" Cook, 
"Rocket" Ross Sanders, "Daring" Don Davis, "Crusher" 
Kevin Bair, "Jivin" James Walker, Mike Chumney and "Wild 
Bill" Meeks. 

Check the newspaper each week for details of the games along 
with the scores. 

The Intranfural Board is sponsoring a jogging course. Anyone 
interested should stop by and see Ms. Weber in the intermural 
office in the gymnasium. 

Bowling is starting soon. -One can signup sheet in th

Racquetball, the fastest 
growing sport in America, has 
arrived here at PBJC. Ten new 
racquetball courts are now 
open to those attending. 
The new courts are located 
behind the gym and can be 
used during anyone's leisure 

Within- the last year, 
racquetball has gone from 
obscurity as a sport to one of 
the more popular sports in 
America. Racquetball has 
always been quite popular 
around the world, but it has 
not hit a high level of 
participation in the U.S. until 
quite recently. 

Racquetball is built in the 
same mold as is tennis. A 
smaller type racquet is used 
and the game can be played on 
an individual or two player 
format. There are also big 
differences betwen the two 
sports: scoring, the wall 
system and equipment used. 

Racquetball has become big 
business. With all the so 
called "racquetball gear," 
such as racquetball suits, 
sneakers, etc., you always 

have a ready supply of gear to 

Racquetball is also great 
exercise. You have to be super 
quick to be able to run down 
some shots. 

To all of you who are crazy 
about racquetball, the new 
racquetball courts on campus 
will be available to play every- 
day. So get on your "gear" 
and start playing.

Legal complexities mar bargaining 

by John Eades 
Staff Writer 

While college administra- 
tors and union teachers still go 
unresolved in a bargaining 
settlement, the PBJC Board of 
Trustees intends to ratify a 
court injunction this afternoon 
against the United Faculty of 
Florida due to the apparent 
context of a state law. 

The statute, brought up to 
the campus UF (also includes 
in the legal action) at the last 
negotiating session on Sept. 

24, prohibits "any unit 
member to solicit or persuade 
another to join any 
organization, financially sup- 
port any organization, support 
any organization's programs, 
activities, goals, positions, 
interests or objectives, or buy 
or sell anything, always 
excluding the College as an

tion, has revised the mandate 
three times in contract talks 
since Aug. 16 in an attempt to 
avoid hidden entrapments. In 
effect, college feelings are that 
instructors should attend to 
teaching duties rather than 
spending time for union- 
associated affairs. 

Ann Steckler, speaking on 
behalf of the union, believes 
the provision has become 
increasingly restrictive, and 
reference to UF activities 
should not be included in the 

"We want equity," 
demanded Steckler, "we've 
conceded enough. We're tired 
of choking on crumbs. ' ' 

A major concession in which 
both sides raised hopes of 
optimism for agreement was 
on the economic level. The UF 
developed a modified proposal 
of 5% salary increase and 
increments that coincided 
within the administration's 
original 7% guidelines derived 
from state restrictions.

The article imposed, how-

constitutionality, has resulted 
in the appearance of federal 
mediator Harold Mills. 

"If it makes any difference, 
a mediator will be helpful," 
commented Jonathan Koontz, 


PBJC spokesman. "The 
proper place to settle is at the 
negotiating table. We can get 
to the real reasons why the 
union objects to what parts, so 
they can be modified."

Eissey opens up 

by Tammy Prohaska 
Associate Editor 

In an unprecedented effort to establish a new outlet of 
communication between the PBJC President and the student 
body, Dr. Edward M. Eissey has initiated weekly informal talks 
inside the student cafeteria beginning Oct. 3 at 10 a.m. 

The idea spawned from regular conversational meetings with 
the faculty. "Tuesday with Ed" developed a substantial teacher 
popularity, and thus the inception of "Wednesday with Ed" 
may relieve the apprehensions of students who feel intimidated 
hy his office. 

To encourage participation, the atmosphere will remain 

elaxcd, providing students the time to think out and discuss 

uestions, gripes, or problems. Aside from addressing the 

^resident directly, remarks submitted on paper during the 

cafeteria conversation could be necessary. 

"Jo open communications up. Dr. Eissey is finding time in his 
overloaded schedule to offer a different way in reaching the 
students. I. for one, think it's great!" exclaimed Dean Robert

As the Oct. 9 and 10 Student Government 
Association (SGA) election draw nearer, the 18 
senatorial candidates are going through the 
customary rituals of campaigning by formalizing 
slogans, putting up posters and planning 

Candidates hoping for a senate seat are 
James Adams, Guy Bair, Lisa Bennett, Beverly 
Bottosto, William Brown, Maurice Ergueta, Roy 
Kaltto, James Laing, and Lisa Lautianier. Other 
applicants include Nancy Lucksavage, Les 
Markham, Kirk Melvin, Mark Mitchell, Scott 
Munn, Sandie Sullivan, Winston Walker, 
Colleen Walsh, and William Watts, 

Of the 18 individuals running, a total of 14 will 
be voted to represent the student body of PBJC. 

"1 want to represent the students and want to 
be their voice in protecting their rights," 
explained candidate Guy Bair. "I would also like 
to prevent any actions by. school officials that 
students feel are detrimental to their rights," 
he added. 

"I would like to see the SGA work toward 
more student togetherness, not just in athletics. 
We need more student involvement," 
exclaimed Nancy Luckasavage. 

Extending the library hours to at least 10 
o'clock, obtaining funds for the campus radio 
station and changing the attendance policy are a 
few of Nancy's main concerns. 

"One of my major concerns is the attendance 
policy. Many of- the students find it to be 
unfair," cited Lisa Lautiainer. Bettering the 
relationship between the faculty and the 
students is a goal Lisa would like to strive for. 
"SGA needs to be more student oriented too," 
she concluded. 

Those four senators receiving the largest 
number of votes will accompany SGA officers 
Polly Young, Bobby Cobb, Kimm Lathrop and 
Steve Solieri to Tampa on Oct. 25 for a 
conference. The all expense paid trip will 
benefit the newcomers as it will teach 
parlimentary procedure. 

Campaign speeches will be given at 10 a.m. 
on Monday, Oct. 8 on the patio outside the SAC 

Voting polls will be located on the bottom 
floor of the library and outside the SAC lounge. 
Students may vote from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 
from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. 


75% of all applicants are accepted

Former US Ambassador at JC campus for Kennedy 

Representing the Draft 
Kennedy movement, Allard 
fc. Lowenstein, former 
Embassador to the U.N.. 
Hsited PBJC Friday, Sept. 21, 
p an effort to solicit campaign

Smbassador was Raymond 
fhomason of Tennessee, and 
iVck Vrooman, a PBJC 
iraduate and recent Florida 
State alumnus. 

' The campaign represent- 
Itives spoke to a Social 
Science class of Edwin V. 
Pugh, the faculty advisor to 
the PBJC Political Union. 
' Fielding questions from the 
Imall group and speaking 
"""informally, Lowenstein related 
his objective in coming to 

PBJC, and that was to 
encourage students to get 
involved in the upcoming 

Lowenstein formerly was a 
Carter appointee to the U.N. 
"1 was on the Human Rights 
Commission, and I resigned 
almost a year ago because I 
couldn't agree with some of 
the policy decisions on Africa 
and the Middle East." 

Continuing, Lowenstein 
tried to explain his switch from 
Carter to Kennedy, "At that 
time, however, I felt I would 
be able to support Carter for 
reelection, but the way things 
have been handled since then, 
I've changed my mind and 
think Kennedy can turn the 
country around." 

Although stating that there 
were peculiar circumstances 
which makes it difficult for 
Kennedy to announce, 
Lowenstein confided, "I 
finally came to realize that he 
really wants to run. ' ' 

Stressing the importance of 
Florida in the forthcoming 

elections, he explained, "If we 
can get Kennedy support from 
Florida and then Iowa, this 
will give him an excellent 
reason to announce ... it's a 
question of timing, not 
whether he'll run, but when." 
"There are 170,000 
Democrats eligible to vote in 

Florida, and out of that 
number, the opinions of 3,000 
will be perceived as the 
sentiment of the community. 

"What can be done in the 
Kennedy movement depends 
on how many people we can 
get to help us in the Draft 
Kennedy Movement. 

"The whole country agrees 
on what they want but Carter 
doesn't seem to be able to turn 
it around. 

"I believe Kennedy can do 
it," he told the class. " 

Because time would * "not* 
allow, there were many 
questions which the Kennedy 
supporters could not answer.

Can college-UF throw in the towel? 

While the administration 
and teacher's unior. continue 
counter-punching one another 
in a ring of controversy and 
complexity . a discouraging 
impression remains that those 
suffering unintentionally are 
the captive spectators known 
as the PBJC student. 

Although claims by both 
sides have stated in the past 
that professionalism prevails, 
the fact that the issues of 
collective bargaining and 
agreement are dragging bring 
up further personal and legal 

The court action being taken 
on the part of the college's 
Board of Trustees in Iigli i of 
unpermissible union activities 
according to law exemplify the 
conflicts stretching since the 
summer. Innuendoes, 
accusations.-and insinuations 
now encompass a Fall term 
which lias registered a record 
amount of students. 

Was a letter written by the 
college President to the UF 
President an act of intrusion? 
Are there affidavits contend- 
ing pressure was applied to 
non-union teachers in joining 

membership? Is the state 
mandate constitutional? Does 
the union accurately represent 
the majority of full-time 
faculty when it is bound not to 
divulge its actual body? Does 
the 7% presidential guidelines 
necessarily have to be adhered 

The questions above are just 
few of the multitude which 
have been raised, and the 
answers contrived from each 
spawn ambiguous responses. 
However, does it matter to the 
students? Perhaps, but it is 
the underlying situation which 
should be the greatest concern 
over all the bantering.

in which the college now rests

Jonathan Koontz, formally 
speaking on behalf of the 

Note the fact that Mr. 
Koontz, as a capable and 
authoritative voice to the 
administation, is not pertinent 
here. On the contrary, the 
situation signified that the 
consumed time of negotiations 
has resulted in the lack of 
executive availability to the 
student in which admini- 
strators have so often 
emphatically professed.

fessional enough to do a really 
good job for the students. 
Most of the teachers artf

But with remarks dis- 
heartening a "very 
demoralized college 
atmosphere for the teachers," 
attributed to the UF negotiator 
and Economics instructor, 
Ann Steckler, the fists flying 
in a flurry of institutional 
antagonism may end up giving 
the students a black eye.

Security deserves praise 

The successful operation of PBJC is 
dependent on the cooperation and hard work of 
many different departments throughout the 
school. However, there are some services that 
seem to be taken for granted by many people. 

When students think of the school's security, 
they think of tickets, a five dollar parking 
permit, and men dressed in what resembles 
police uniforms. In general, the security force is 
either thought little of, or not at all. 

It is time for people on this campus to give 
due credit to this hard working and efficient 
organization. While their main job is the 
security of school property, they perform a 
number of diversified jobs that make this school 
a better and safer place to learn and work. 

They will assist in jumping a car when the 
lights have been left on and the battery is dead. 

If the keys have been locked inside, don't break

they were happy to be

Sunshine stafe smiles satirically 

by Celia Vock 
Contributing Editot 

Imagine, if you can, that you 
are a citizen of a northern 
state, winter has arrived, you 
are tired of the cold and the 
snow and have a desperate 
need for a vacation. You have 
just spent several hundred 
dollars on a plane ticket: 
destination... Palm Beach 

International Airport. 

You are about to become 
one of those stranger than life 
animals the residents here call 

You expect to step off the 
plane into the exclusive 
sunshine and free life of the 
Palm Beaches. Palm trees, 
tropical cocktails, white shoes 
and no socks. For two weeks, 
baby, this is the life! Right? 

This is my fail warning to all 
prospective" tourists: the Palm 
Beaches are just a little bit 
"off" from the majority of 
northerners expectations. 
We're just not up to par. 

One of the First things 
you're going to run into after 
leaving the airport is the 
illiteracy of Florida's Depart- 
ment "of Transportation 
employees who paint the 
words' of ditection on the 
highways. I have driven in this 
town to'i about six years and 
have yet to find the word 
"merge" spelled correctly. It 
took me the longest time to 
figure out what "merg" was, 
and then how to do it. I don't 
know if anyone knows. "You 
merg", "they merg", "we 
will attempt to merg. 
ddcious. Put that on the 
highway in bright florescent 

Now the beauty of the palm 
trees can't be denied. But a 
calm walk down Flagler Drive 
in West Palm Beach is enough 
to make you wonder where the 
city's water supply comes 
from. The water used to keep 
all the greenery green and the 
palm trees growing taller has a 
remarkable tendancy to turn 
the sidewalks from white to 
rusty orange. This is, in fact, 
the same water you are served 
in some of our fanciest 

Speaking of those, if you 
have any plans to eat in one of 
them during "the season", 
make your reservations as 
soon as you get to town. 
Otherwise, in order to get a 
table for dinner you'll have to 
use the name Kennedy or the 
prefix "senator." It works 
every time. 

As tar as catching the sun 
and going back home with a 
tan to make your friends and 
neighbors jealous, we've got 
sunshine to spare for sure. But 
don't climb off the beach and 
expect to walk to a Worth 
Avenue hot-spot in your 
bathing suit, because walking 
around Palm Beach in your 
bathing suit is illegal. It 
warrants a ticket and a small 
fine. But that's Palm Beach, 
not Palm Beach West. 

In Palm Beach West, you 
can wear about anything you 
want, but as recently as 1966 
you didn't want to be caught 
wealing it while playing 
games on Sunday. That was 
illegal, too. Florida State 
Statute 484. (855.05) "Penalty 
for engaging in game or sport 
on Sunday, ---whoever en- 
gages on Sunday in any game 
or sport, such as football or 
bowling, as played in bowling 

alleys, or horse racing, 
whether as player, manager, 
director or otherwise, shall be 
deemed guilty of a mis- 
demeanor and shall be 
punished by a fine not 
exceeding one hundred 
dollars, or by imprisonment in 
the county jail not exceeding 
three months." Wow, no 
bowling on Sunday. 

But things are picking up — 
a few of those laws are 
disappearing, like "Death by 
Racing Steamboat." And if 
Casino Gambling every makes 
its way to Palm Beach County, 
we might soon be able to build 
into the tourist heaven we 
should be, and take a turn for 
the better way Atlantic City 

Don't get too worried, 
tourist , we may be backwards, 
but we know where our money 
conies from. 

Commodores sail on 
"Midnight Magic" 

by Tony Rizzo 

Staff Writer 

Lionel Ritchie, who is the spearhead of the Comadores, once 
said that he'd like to see his group go down in music history as 
the "Black Beatles," With their newest, "Midnight Magic," 
they may succeed in becoming just that. They haven't 

released anything yet to flaw their already well established 
leputation and this album makes it even more sound. 
The album shines. James Anthony's production strengthens 
each song with rich horn and string arrangements. It's evident 
that a lot of time and thought must have gone into the recording 
and composing of each song. 

"Midnight Magic" is curiously unique in that it's not whai 
could be defined as typical disco or soul. The same rhythyms can 
be found here, but the bands ability to succeed a step further in 
the arrangements of each song mysteriously sets their music 
apart from the standard 1234 beat. 

"Gctlin' It" begins the album in the standard Commodores 
fast paced but subtle style but yet comes across as something 
new. "Midnight Magic" and "You're Special" sustain "Gettin' 
It" by maintaining this continuity. "Still" a mellow song is a 
nice closing piece for the first side. 

"Wonderland," also a mellow song, opens side two. It leaves 
the unsuspecting listener in a very passive state as well as 
totally unprepared for "Sexy Lady" a song with rock overtones. . 
The group's current hit "Sail On" can also be found on this side, 
This particular song is a testimonial to Ritchie's remarkabje 
song writing talents that have manifested on songs such as 
"Just to Be Close to You" and "Three Times a Lady' . 

"Midnight Magic" is just merely another addition to the 
Commadores long line of previous hits. 

These guys have definitely come a long way since their name 
became nationally known in the early part of this decade. 

At that time they were just another, if you can stand it, "Sou! 
band". Nevertheless, Lionel Ritchie deserves a great deal of 
credit for contributing to the musical depth in both disco and 
soul, credit that he has unfortunately not been receiving. 

What many critics and observers cannot seem to grasp is that 
among all the bland disco ho-hum there is, if you will, a genius, 
someone that's well aware of what he's trying to accomplish. 
Maybe if Ritchie persists long enough he'll live to see his name 
in the books right next to Lennon and McCartney.

Seasonal swarms 

by Mike Chumney 
Feature Editor 

For many Floridians. the beginning of the fall tourist season is 
welcomed. Shopowners, merchants, landlords and other 
business-oriented people rejoice in the hoides of northern 
travelers who come to Florida to be rid of the icy winters of the 
north. Commerce and trade are increased considerably and this 
means a higher money intake, which of course makes the 
business community very happy, indeed. 

But, what if you have no vested interest in the swarms of 
seasonal masses? How do they affect the lives of the average 
person, such as myself? I'll tell you. They give me ulcers. 

I'm sure that an economist or businessman could argue the 
point that everybody benefits from the seasonal trade 
reguardlcss of status or occupation. 

But, to me, the fall season represents an onslaught of 
travel-happy motorists who drive with near-reckless abandon in 
their luxury land-boats, knowing that they have a perfect 
disguise by which to avoid confrontations with the law. In other 
words, they have a perfect excuse for driving like idiots; they're 

Maybe I'm being harsh, but from the way out-of-state drivers 
rip around, you'd think the speed limit in their home state was 
80, not 55 which is supposed to be the national speed limit. 

And if they don't speed, they creep. They drive 5 mph in a 
congested 35 mph /one, blinker flashing continuously and 
making a false turn at every road looking for the turn-off that'll 
take them to Cousin' Flo's house. 

How about the ones that make illegal U-turns on a 
fast-moving 4-lane, leaving the rear of their car blocking traffic 
and causing near-accidents in both lanes. They make illegal 
right turns on red; they make illegal left turns on red; they give 
me ulcers. 

I recognize the fact that we have splended examples of 
motorists who show an anwing lack of driver skills right here 
living in Florida. You don't have to look farther than downtown 
Lake Worth to realize this. Many of these drivers are only 
out-of-staters who have settled here. 

It's bad enough to have to put up with our bad drivers 
"year-round, but when the fall season comes, if you walk, ride a 
bike, or even drive a small car, watch out!

Continuing education meeting community diversity Participation lOCK hurts OthletlCS 

Staff Writer 

Continuing Education can 
mean anything from taking a 
course in air conditioning and 
refridgerator repair to attend- 
ing exercise sessions of T'ai 

The wide variety of classes, 
courses, projects and programs 
that are included in the sphere 
of Continuing Education were 
established to meet the 
educational and cultural needs 

of the adult community. 

The program actually serves 
two functions by providing 
teaching and instructing for 
the students. Occupational 
training gives instructional 
services to those people that 
desire job advacement or need 
to acquire additional skills for 
present or future jobs. The 
other side of Continuing 
Education is C.I.S., 
Community Instructional 
Service, that opens up on a 
broad range of general 

interest courses for little or no 

Money for CIS courses, 
granted from the state of 
Florida, is approved by a 
committee that decides 
whether or not it serves to help 
with specific community 
problems. One course, New 
Dimensions , serves a social 
climate for elderly and retired 
citizens.The program consists 
of lectures and an occassional 
tour or field trip to a place of 

Fred Holling, director of 
Continuing Education, reports 
that the CIS has now created a 
course to give the mentally 
handicapped participation in 
the program. Mrs. Yolanda 
Greenly, in charge of the 
Creative Arts for the mentally 
handicapped, stages plays in 
which participants learn work 
and drama teachinques. 

"Continuing Education is 
really expanding!" says 
director Fred Holiling. 

One unique example, the 

Women's Studies category, 
set courses specifically for 
women. 'Office typing

The most unique course is

Guest Speaker - Mr. Allard Lowenstein 

Former Ambassador To The U.N. 



The Bible is its own defense. Look at the 
foundation and the scientifically acccurate 
superstructure of the Bible and you will be 
encouraged by its towering strength. 

Examine first the literary harmony of the 
masterful piece of written architecture that was 
started by Job more than 2000 years before 
Christ and completed by the sensitive, beloved 
John sixty years after the death of his Saviour. 
In spite of the 2000 years difference in time and 
the intricate interacting support of at least forty 
human recorders in two languages— Hebrew and 
Greek-the Bible presents a "set" in 
mathematical terminology or a purposeful, 
harmonious unit of thought. 

Why is there no weakness in the Scriptural 
framework? The foundation is God, Yaweh, the 
eternally existing One. As God, Himself, 
superintended the writing of His message 
through the minds *nd pens of dedicated men, 
He allowed no en ' in the original text. No, 
there was no dicta \, but in the words of the 
postle Peter, "hol> men were moved along by 
the Holy spirit." (2 Peter 1:20,21) A brilliant 
Swiss theologian, Gaussen, called the Scripture 
inspiration, "God-breathed." Even as children 
become wholly committed to a television 
program hearing and seeing nothing around 
them but later direct Mother, "Buy this or that 1 
saw, on TV!" So men of God who had been 
chosen to write down His message in their own 
particular time, gave themselves to know and 
heed God'd voice. Each writer knew that his 
message was for his day and people-and also 
for people of all ages. 

The style, figures of speech and culture of a 

given writer are unique but the message is 

always harmonious with the total pattern. There 

are no contradictions and no disjunctions that 

cannot be understood when the total unit of 

thought is analyzed. Scripture interprets itself 

as a whole, contextual structure but there are as 

many applications to personal needs as there 

are people reading the Word of God. If one 

element of the biblical framework is tampered 

with, that person is likely to experience a 

crushing blow from the hammer of God or get 

burned by His fire according to the dynamic 


Secondly, examine the geographic accuracy 
of Scripture. Compare the Biblical Geography 
with any atlas today and you will find absolute 
harmony. One religious philosopher tried to 
convience his students of a contradiction in the 
Bible because Luke said in his Gospel that Jesus 
ascended from near Bethany while in The Acts, 
He ascended from the Mt. of Olives. Did the 
religious rationalist not know that Bethany is a 
village on the Mt. of Olives? 

Dr. Nelson Gleuck, one of Israel's leading 
archaeologists, declared on numerous 
occasions, "When I look for a new Biblical site 
to excavate, I take my Bible and find that place 
exactly as described in Scripture." 

History is the third test for examining the 
durability of God's Word. According to the 
ancient Greek concept, history is people doing 
things someplace in a time zone. Lift out every 
nation mentioned in Scripture and compare 
what the Bible says about the people in a given 
time or place with any secular textbook and you 
will find complete parallel harmony. 

Lay the life and culture of Abraham within 
that of ancient Sumer; set Moses in Egypt's 
Eighteenth Dynasty; see David beside the 
Hittites; examine Daniel in the light of New 
Babylonian culture; or study Paul living in the 
First CenturyRoman Empire and you will be 
forced to confess a parallel accuracy. As. Dr. 
William Albright used to say in class, And Dr. 
Albright was Dean of the School of Antiquities 
at Johns Hopkins University. 

If the literary styling, the geography and the 
history of the bible present a mathematical set 
of wholeness, why can't we accept its message? 
Yes, the message is one--God, Creator of the 
universe, has loved His highest creation, man 
designed in His own likeness, so much that He 
has made detailed preparation for every living 
soul to enjoy oneness in His family forever. The 
only 'roadblock to that perfect fellowship has 
been sin, and He paid the price of death for that 
"in His own body on the tree" called Calvary. 

Why don't you openly examine the Scriptures 
as God's love letter to you personally and 
believe what He said? 

Educators and community 
leaders everywhere are raving 
about the historically accurate 
new film "JESUS" by 
Inspirational Films of 
California. "JESUS is a 
"master-piece" according to 
Fulton J. Sheen. 

The text for "JESUS" is the 
Good News Bible version of 
Luke's biography of Jesus. 
Only the scene for the 
"Sermon on the Mount" is 
taken from the King James 

"JESUS" was filmed in the 

Holy Land at the site where 
events took place -- a fact that 
makes this film dynamic of 
real life. The Word of God 
comes alive and Jesus walks 
into the twentieth century with 
His disciples. 






Dr. Benjamin Spock has now come out strong for religious 
education. According to his latest "discovery," Dr. Spock writes 
a new prescription for Sunday Schools because they have much 
to offer. 

Whether agnostic, atheist or just "plain religious", the 
famous pediatrician, recommends Judaiam and Christianity as 
essential and "integral parts of the history, culture, and 
attitudes of most people in the United States." The Bible 
"stories" are valuable in preparation for good citizenship. 
Psalms and hymns are good for emotional stability at any age. 

While Judaeo-Christian teachings may mean different things 
to individuals at different ages, the truths remain the same and 
are stabilizing elements in personality growth.

There is a growing problem 
in collegiate athletics which 
has now hit right at home at 
Palm Beach Junior College. 
JC's volleyball program was 
dropped last week, adding to 
the growing list of sports 
programs being dropped in 
colleges across the country. 

Lack of funding and no 
scholarships being alloted to 

players was cited as the reason 
for dropping the sport, 
announced by JC president 
Dr. Eissey. The team 
encountered several fatal 
problems when only four girls 
had expressed interest in 
playing aftei a week and a half 
oi tryouts. A coaching problem 
and a horrendous lack of 
support were also major 
factors in the decision to drop 
the sport. 
'Hie main problem lies in the 

increasing costs of funding 
sports such as volleyball, 
which are virtually unoticable 
in the overall sports picture. 
Although Junior College 
athletics differ greatly from 
major state colleges iri terms 
of tan interest and support, 
these major universities have 
also experienced difficulties in 
this area. The University of 
Miami and University of 
Tampa have cancelled theii 
basketball and football 

programs, respectively, 
during the past several years 
because of economic reasons. 

There is no explanation of 
why more girls are not 
interested in participating in 
volleyball. All area high 
schools field full varsity and 
junior varsity teams, which fall 
right behind Softball in terms 
of participation and fan 

When schools are forced to 
cancel athletic programs, it 
hurts not only the athletes, but 
the overall athletic program as 
well. A revaluation must take 
place in which the sport in 
question and others in danger 
of extinction are completely 
revamped. It is in the best 
interests of the athletic 
program, the student body, 
and the college as awhole to 
rescue volleyball from an 
inevitable fate. 

Beachcomber / Sponts 

Bombers begin season with a bang 

The action was fast and furious on the gridiron in Intramural 
Flag Football competition. Dominating the week's action was a 
game played between the Beachcomber Bombers and the Food 
Management Maulers. 

The final score was 52-7 in fabor of the Bombers, but it was a 
much closer game than the score would indicate. The Maulers 
scored on their first possession when Mauler captain Les 
Markham ran the ball in from five yards out. He then passed for 
the one point conversion. 

The Bombers came back on a Rodney Cook to James Walker 
pass of about fifteen yards. The conversion failed. The game 
settled down after that. The Bomber defense came alive to stifle 
the Maulers attack. The Bomber offense then came out from 
under wraps as they exploded for forty-six points. 

Touchdowns by ross Sanders, Don Davis and James Walker 
highlighted the action. The Mauler defense led by Bobby Cobb 
and Joe Mastro gave the Bombers a rough time. The main

Sports not all money and glory-

Mr. Jim Simons, coach of the mens golf team.

Sports Editor 

What do you think about 
when the word sports is 
mentioned? Money?Action? 
Glory? Maybe, but there is 
another side, a darker side 
that is very much a part of 
sports as any of these. This 
other side is injury. 

Just this week, Scott 
Brantley, a linebacker for the 
Florida Gators, suffered a 
head injury playing against 
Georgia Tech. Brantley has 
been told he cannot engage in 
contact sports of any kind ever 
again, or risk a crippling 

Scott's case is especially 
bad. He was rated as a 
preseason All-America, and 
had a bright future in pro 
football. How, he may be 
forgotten in a short while. 

Pick up a sports page each 
morning and read through it. 
You'll read about many 
different players who are 
injured or unable to play and 
you won't think twice about it. 
But each of these players is 
going through a very private 

When athletes 4o get 
injured, their first tendency is 
to think "Why me?" or "Will 
I be all right?" When they 
learn that they are not all 
right, there begins a very long 


In many cases surgery is 
required, followed by a long 
period of recuperation. During 
this period, the injured athlete 
must watch his teammates 
performing, instead of being 
able to participate. Often he is 
left alone at the end of the 
bench, shunned by his 
teammates, or given some 
menial job to keep busy. 

During this recuperation, an 
athlete can go through a 
serious stage of depression, 
wondering if he will ever be as 
good as before. Most likely he 

Many athletic careers are 
shortened immensely because 
of injury. Most prominent in 
my mind is Gale Sayers, a 
former running back with the 
Chicago Bears. His career was 
cut short by a series of 
nagging knee injuries. Sayers 
is lucky, he found a career 
outside of footabll, many 

Some become cab drivers or 
whatever they can. One 
ex-Steeler Quarterback is now 
in jail in Baltimore for dealing 

But many athletes do 
recuperate fully and become 
even better because of hard 
work. One outstanding 
example of this isRocky Bleir, a 
running back with the 
Steelers. Bleir has suffered 

injuries each year in his N.F.L. 
career, but hung on through 
sheer determination. 

Injuries, as much a part of 
sports as T.V., cheerleaders, 
referees, money, and all the 
others. But a part of sports 
many of us unfortunately 
choose to ignore. 


It's time again for the 
picking of the JC 

There are currently nineteen 

girls competing for the ten 
spots on the squad. The 
people in charge of selecting 
the girls are Peggy Kunsman, 
the Athletic office secretary, 
and Kay Wacker, the captain 
of last years squad. The girls 
do various exercises to keep 
their bodies limber for 
cheering and practice one and 

The girls must follow the 
guidelines and rules set up for 
them. They must also 
maintain- a GPA of 2.0. The . 
first look at this years squad

After one of the most 
grueling years in Baseball 
histoty, the divisional winners 
have finally come abroad. 
After everyone was expecting 
to see the Phillies, Yankees, 
Rangers, and Dodgers in the 
playoffs of 1979, they all got 
the unexpected when the 
Orioles, Angels, Pirates, and 
Reds won their respective 

California Angels vs 

Baltimore Orioles - The "No 
Name" Orioles with the great 
pitching staff will overpower 
the Angel lineup. This is the 
first ever title for theAngels, 
lead by MVP candidate Don 
Baylor, and Rod Carew. After 
these two players the angels 
are suspect. The Angels have 
names and that is it. Nolan 
Ryan is only a .500 pitcher, the 
rest of the Angel staff is either 
injured (Frank Tanana) or 
overrated (Chris Knapp). 

The Orioles are technically 
strong everywhere. The pitch- 
ing staff has five first class 
starters lead by Cy Young 
Award winner Mike Flanagan 
(23-8). The Orioles are near 
the bottom of the league in 
hitting but always seem to 
come through in the clutch. 
The big hitters on the Orioles 
are Ken Singleton and Eddie 
Murray. Singleton is one of 
the top candidates for 
American League MVP 

honors. The Oriole defense is 
as strong as they come. There 
is no way that the Orioles can 
lose this series, their road 
record is superb and they 
rarely lose at home. Prediction 
-- Orioles 3, Angels 1. 

Pirates vs Reds - Neither 
team has an overpowering

do have the best bullpen in the

(SGA) senate elections. With a 
dismissal at 9:10 a.m. 
granted, students interested 
may head to the SAC lounge 
for the candidate campaign 

Voting will take place 
tomorrow and Wednesday. 
Four voting machines will be 
located on the SAC patio. Polls 
will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 
2:00 p.m. and from 6:30 to 
8:30 p.m. 

"We will divide the 
machines up alphabetically so 
there shouldn't be any lines. 
Students should be able to 
walk right up to the machines 
and vote," explained SGA 
Vice President Bobby Cobb. 

Candidates voiced their 
opinions on several issues, the 
most popular appearing to be 
the attendance policy, student 
apathy and the increased 
tuition fees. 

"I think the new attendance 
policy is a little steep. 
Twenty-five percent was too 
much, but ten percent is too 
little. More consideration 

should have been given,

Nominee Kirk Melvin also 
expressed his view on the 
attendance policy revision. "I 
believe money is being thrown 
away after just missing 3 or 4 
classes," he said. 

"The senate has a weak 
past. We need to take the first 
step, the initative and find 

common goals. We must 
motivate and bring everyone 
together," concluded Kirk, 

Another senate bidder, Lisa 
Bennett, voiced her opinions 
and ideas. "I want to be an

BOT considering plans for PBJC campus hotel 

Palm Beach Junior College 
District Board of Trustees 
called a special meeting last 
Monday which left one item 
undecided, another debated, 
and a third completely 
l esolved. 

Citing the committee's duty 
"to protect the image" of the 
school, BOT chairman, Di. 
Phillip O. Lichtblau, proposed 
the creation ot a study group 
to assess the feasibility m 
developing a hotel and 
apartment complex on 

The plans, presented by 
William Plum of Mullan 
Enterprises, will start out with 
a 200 unit apartment and hotel 
complex, including a bank, 
professional building and 
shopping center. The 
development will be used as a 
training ground for JC 
students. Business and Allied 
Health students will obtain 
training in the bank and 
professional building, re- 
spectively. The proposed 
shopping center will offer 
fashion merchandising and 
marketing students 
opportunities, also. 

"The waterfront hotel and 
apartment complex will serve 
both faculty and the 
students," Plum said. 

Students in hotel management 
will obtain useful training. The 
hotel will also serve as a place 
for visiting dignitaries and 
others to stay and hold 

The senior citizens will 
benefit from the apartment 
building. "These apartments 
should bring seniors closei to 
the college, encourage then- 
participation in the 
community, as well as expand 
then mmds," explained Plum. 

The buildings would be 
designed by Mr. Harry 
MacEwen, an accomplished 
local architect. The purpose of 
his work and the planned 
landscaping is to beautify the 
site, so not to detract from JC. 

The preliminary site plan is 
for the approximately 20 acres 
on the north end of the 
campus. The southern 
boundary will be the drainage 
canal. The waterway will serve 
as the eastern boundary and 
the proposed site of the hotel 
and apartment complex. 

"The easy access tol-95 and 
the turnpike make this location 
ideal! ' ' exclaimed Plum. 

The land will be assessed at 
the present market value and 
be used as equity for the 30 
year mortgage. The land will 
then be leased from the 
college to Mullan Enterprises 

for development. 

Each year JC will receive a 
percentage of the profits made 
fiom the complex. At the 
payment of the mortgage, the 
property will be turned over to 
the college. 

Plum asked the board for 
permission to proceed with a 
90-120 day hard fact study at 
Mullan' s expense. The pur- 
pose of this study is to 
lesearch the actual feasibility 
of the plan. 

After discussion of this 
matter, the board felt it their 
responsibility to move slowly 
and investigate this matter 
fully. Council member, Susann 
Anstead, was concerned over 
profits being made on public 

To answer the concerns, a 
study group, including 
students Bobby Cobb and 
Tammy Prohaska and faculty 
members Trinette Robinson 
and Robert Suttle, was 
requested. Their report within 
60 days will bring decisive 
action from the board. 

Another decisive action 
which met individual 
opposition of the panel was the 
public ratification in taking 
court action against the United 
Faculty of Florida and its 
college affiliate from soliciting 
membership or other union

Anstead, objecting to the 
inclusion of faculty member 
Harriet McCann in the suit, 
declared that UF President, 
Ken Megill, was "the blatant 
breaker of the law" that 
mislead McCann into thinking 
"she was doing right. " 
. "We (BOT) can accomplish 
what we want with Megill 
bearing the cross," she 

PBJC President Edward M. 

Eissey firmly countered the 
remark by stating he "can't 
recommend" any letigating 
alterations because "this type 
of action cannot be repeated. ' ' 

The original motion was 
approved 4-1. 

Additionally, the panel 
unanimously okayed the final 
agenda item, which extended 
five days on the completion of 
the campus handball courts 
due to Hurricane David and 
other weather delays.

Erudite educators exhibit extreme endurance 

The recent devaluation of the dollar 
has made our 12 years of education 
prior to college monetarily worth six 
years of education. Is this monetary 
devaluation synonymous with the 
quality of education? 

There have been a lot of questions 
raised about today's education system. 
Through a recent survey of state 
universities in Florida, it has been 
discovered that PBJC graduates 
perform better at the university level 
than students who began there as 
freshman. Is it because JC is a better 
institution than most, or does it attract 
better students? 

The findings of the 11th grade tests 
seemed to surprise few college 
instructors. Most JC instructors did 
show concern with the quality of 
education given to students prior to 
college. Their concern was exhibited by 

their frequent lectures on the poor 
education of today's student. 

For example, one instructor 
compared test scores from his 
freshman class, first grammar test to 
those of students 10 years ago who took 
the same test. His results were 
defeating. He found his curve in 1969 
was 1-2 errors = A, 3-4 errors = B, 
etc. His 1979 students missed 10 
questions and still received an A. 
Obviously, his students are now lacking 
in their grammar background. One 
other English instructor has found that 
his students are "word poor." His 
solution is a long vocabulary list. 

Another instructor surveyed his 
sophomore class for their cultural 
background. Given a list of 100 varied 
classical works, students were asked to 
name the authors. The average 
response rate was less than 25% 
CORRECT. Liberal arts background 

was all but missing in these students. 

Language instructors have also 
found their students lacking in 
knowledge of the world. Most foreign 
language instructors add to their 
students knowledge with personal 
experiences and slides. 

One math professor instructs two 
courses for the price of one. He had 
found errors on his students' tests that 
indicated few of them had an adequate 
algebra background. To compensate, 
he reviews the necessary algebra for 
that day's lecture. 

The science department seems to be 
notorious for thought-provoking 
questions. These instructors seem to 
refuse to allow parroting; their lectures 
and tests require application of theory. 

These are but a few examples. Each 
professor at JC seems to be doing more 
than his share to make knowledge 
useful and memorable to the student. 

One professor summed up his 
philosophy on grades and the 
attendance policy in an anecdote. 
Imagine if all our instructors would 
automatically give as A's and not 
require attendance. It would be easy on 
the professors. When the student goes 
to get a job and is unable to fill out the 
application, even though receiving an 
A in wilting, that student would have 
lost out. How about the magna cum 
laude medical student who is about to 
operate, but does not know the 
difference between an artery and a 

Some students come to JC almost 
illerate. The professors deserve some 
gratitude for turning out some of the 
finest students in Florida. At least they 
won't starve; they can impress 
someone with enough knowledge to get 
a free cup of coffee and a doughnut. 

ew systematic senate needed 

For 14 candidates, tomorrow's commencement of 
student Senate elections initiates the outcome of victors 
v\ho will represent the largest campus body on record at 
PBJC. It could also mean, hopefully, a welcomed 
difference from tailoring a new band in an old hat of 
issues and circumstances. 

Campaigns point out the standardization of protecting 
students' rights is a basic and common goal, despite the 
horn that voting support at the SGA polls supposedly 
shows the usual community college apathy. Both 
instances are the perennial generalizations that have 
+ 1oundeied the institutional government in the past. 

Polly Young, SGA Piesident, believes the problems 
will be yielded by a strong, influential legislature 
determined in the ' ' preservation of student rights. ' ' 

"The Senate is going to have a lot of power," she 
proclaimed, "and nobody's rights are going to be taken 

Vice-President Bobby Cobb eyes the solutions through 
the potential senator and his own self-interests. Senators 
may be hurting their chances for allocated funds, 
considering they could represent students of certain 
departments who ' ' don't go out and vote. ' ' 

Obviously, the executives take the stand that issues 
and apathy bear primary examination. However, the 
SGA might pose its constituency into an unnecessary 

bind of misnomers. 

"Perhaps there are no real burning issues that the 
students are that interested in," remarked acting 
Vice-President of Student Affairs, Robert Moss. 
"Sometimes student government can't find a really good 
issue to attract attention. But that's not to say, we 
couldn't do a better job than we've been doing in the 
past. ' ' 

Moss continued, "Students have many other 
concerns. The evidence we have here is that the primary 
purpose for students has shown to be keeping up with 
studies, and earning good grades. I wouldn't call that 
apathy. Rather, I would applaud these facts. " 

In essence, the association, as well as those 
campaigning, might delve into issues that do not find 
importance with the campus majority. A constant drive 
to "remove student apathy" could be senseless if the 
slogan doesn't necessarily apply. 

Although there is disagreement, the answer can't lie 
in bland, political talk. Where it lies is in the active 
handling of incidents as they are acknowledge by those 
in which SGA represents. 

By avoiding the typical, dogmatic responses of the 
past, it is expected the upcoming student government 
reactto situations best suiting the populace of PBJC while 
ignoring the opportunities of scapegoats.

His car often breaks down on

he is automatically classified 

as a failure. 

Explanations for his 
absenses may serve as 
defense against possible 
failure grades from 
instructors, but in the eyes of 
the originators of the

It's Your Right To Vote 
Don't Give It Up! 


Besides the issues, all 
candidates stressed the 
importance of students going 
to the polls to vote. 

"The low voter turn-out is a 
traditional problem. In past 
years a very small number of 
students casted votes," stated 
Dean Robert Moss, acting 
Vice-President of Student 

"What students don't seem 
to understand is that SGA is 
the 'clearing house' for 
contengency funds for all 
groups and organizations. 
That is why it is important for 
students to make it a point to 
go to the polls. Many of the 
individuals running have 
membership in several 
clubs," clarified Cobb. 


President Eissey: reaching out to students. 

Wednesday with Ed 

"Wednesday with Ed" 
transformed novelty into 
reality as PBJC President 
Edward M. Eissey discussed 
first-hand topics raised by 

The majority of the 
questioning in the cafeteria 
centered around the recent 
change in the attendance 

"What we want to do is try 
it, study it and see if there is a 
correlation betwen attendance 
and a student's grade point 
average," Eissey said. 

"The students' input will 
come in if they feel something 
has been done unjustly, but 

ue want to give it a chance to 
work," he continued. 
"Certainly if the policy brings 
on any discrimination, 1 would 
take that into consideration." 

Dr. Eissey further explained 
that since the policy is now a 
board rule, he would not make 
the decision on any changes 
but would bring a recom- 
mendation before the board. 

The informal sessions with 
the president are now 
scheduled once a month, but 
following the first talks, 
several students expressed the 
opinion that they felt it might 
be tremendously beneficial on 
a more frequent basis.

Who lives in Cheap Trick? Dieter's dichotomy 


by Bill Meredith 

Staff Writer 

My first encounter with Cheap Trick came in 
1976. I was thumbing through a Creem 
magazine when I came upon an advertisement, 
which said "Meet a Cheap Trickster." Above 
that line was a picture of bassist Tom Petersson. 
On the next three pages there were similar ads 
with pictures of the other three "Cheap 
Tricksters." Right then, I figured these guys 
didn't have much of a chance. Two guys who 
looked like rockers, and two who looked like, 
well, non-rockers. Extremely. And to top it off, 
their debut album was available only by mail 
order. I was sure this would be my last 
encounter with Cheap Trick. 

Obviously, I have been proven quite wrong. 
Cheap Trick has since jelled into an 
Ultra-popular band, and has just released their 
fifth album- "Dream Police." 

The new album has actually been ready for 
months, but it's release was delayed by the 
popularity of their unstoppable live album- 
' 'Cheap Trick at Budokan. ' ' 

But "Dream Police" is worth the wait, for it 
contains some fine material. "Way of the 
World" and "Writing on the Wall" are both 
good rockers, and "The House is Rockin" (With 
Domestic Problems) may be Cheap Trick's 
strongest song ever in that category. On it, lead 
guitarist-clown Rick Nielsen has a field day, 
mixing new power chords with some 
recognizable old notes on his solos. Drummer 
Bun E. Carlos also does some powerful rock 
drumming on this cut. 

The change-of-pace ballad "Voices" contains 
a beautiful vocal by singer-guitarist Robin 
Zander, and bassist Tom Petersson does his 
first vocal ever on "I Know What I Want." The 
four Cheap Trick members collectively wrote 
"I'll Be With You Tonight", which will probably 
be the first single from the album. 

Like all Cheap Trick albums, "Dream Police" 
has a few short-comings. The title cut is a bit 
weak, and "Gonna Raise Hell" their follow-up 
teenage anthem to "Surrender," is just too 
long. Nine minutes is a bit much for one guitar 
line. Also, "Need Your Love" should not have 
been added, for it was done just as well or better 
on the "Budokan" LP. 

Despite it's faults, "Dream Police" is another 
log on the growing fire forCheap Trick. It is not 
their first album. "Budokan" (which became 
the highest selling import album EVER in a 
matter of weeks) or 1977's "In Color" album 
would hold that claim. But "Dream Police" is 
quite comparable to 1978's "Heaven Tonight" 
album, which, with its trilogy of killers 
"California Man," "On Top Of The World" and 
"Surrender," brought Cheap Trick immense 
popularity and critical acclaim. 

Beatles comparisons are often made by the 
media, but it is the Who-ish duo of Rick Nielsen 
and Bun E. Carlos which makes Cheap Trick 
work. Sure, Tom Petersson is a fine bassist, and 
Robin Zander a more than adequate vocalist, 
but Nielsens Hendrix/Townsend 4 guitars-at-a- 
time style has made him the latest in the line of 
guitar heroes. And Carlos is the closest thing in 
style to the late, great Keith Moon. 

Late night's wildest of crazy guys 

by Celia Vock 
Contributing Editor 

He was wild and crazy long 
before he brought Steve 
Martin before the American 
viewing public, and before 
anyone knew who Dan 

He's not above being hit in 
the face with a cream pie, 
falling from a platform 20 feet 
in the air to an awaiting Sealy 
Posturepedic, or receiving a 
wet kiss from a baby gorilla. 

He's not afraid to do ten 
minutes of stand-up comedy in 
front of an audience several 
times a week, because even 
when the materia! isn't funny, 
he is. 

His hame has become a 
cliche'as any household word, 
and America has been loving 
him for 17 years. He's the host 
of The Tonite Show . Johnny 

Carson inherited the late- 
night show from Jack Paar 
back in the days when 
television was mostly black 
and white, and has been 
slowly moving in on Milton 
Berle's title of "Mr. 
Television" ever since. Not 
bad for a boy from Nebraska. 

There are several things 
that have brought Carson to 
the "top", but the first two 
things that come to mind are 
his talents at comedy and 
conversation. He is a master at 
both, as evidenced by network 
competitors such as Dick 

Cavett and Merv Griffin who 
have failed to bump Carson 
out of the ratings game. While 
their shows held close to the 
purest meaning of "talk 
show," The Tonite Show leans 
more toward varied enter- 
tainment, with a much heavier 
emphasis on comedy. 

"If you're a host, one of 
your jobs is to read your 
audience to feel what kind of 
mood they are in and what 
their reactions are at the 
time," Carson stated in a 
recent interview with The 
Saturday Evening Post • 
"Hosting that show, you tind 
yourself in a lot of situations. 
It trains your mind to work 
fast. If you don't have a gift for 
ad libbing, you'd better 
develop one." He has. 

Take, for example, the night 
Carson, Burt Reynolds and 
Dom Deluise smashed eggs 
down each other's pants, then 
topped it off with a can of 
whipped cream. This was one 
of ad libbing' s finest 
moments, something the 
public has yet to grow tired of. 
It seems, however, that 
Carson has developed the 
feeling that his antics have run 
their course. In the past few 
years he has been doing only 
three or four shows a week 
instead of five, and two 
months ago almost left the 
show completely, held up only 
by his contract with NBC. 

"Any performer's energy 

level is better after a rest, " he 
says on the subject of his 
frequent "nights off." "My 
writers are fresher, too. 
They've had more time to 
think. When I was doing the 
show five days a week, it was 
tough to keep my energy level 
from dropping off around 
Thursday or Friday. ' ' 

"The trick in our show is to 
keep it from getting boring," 
he continued. "If I didn't have 
time to do mental and physical 
rebounding, I'd have quit the 
show five years ago. ' ' 

When Carson does leave the 
show for good, America will 
surely miss the appearances of 
Aunt Blabby, Carnac the 
Magnificent and Floyd R. 
Turbo, the redneck who 
usually takes the wrong side of 
the argument, all characters of 
Carson's own creation, as he 
moves on to play Las Vegas 
and possibly into motion 

But Carson said at the close 
of the October 4th anniversary 
show, "thank you for being 
with us, sticking with us for 17 
years and stick around, we're 
going to be around for 
awhile," reassuring millions 
of people who have spent 
countless hours with Carson 
only six feet away that they'll 
have plenty of time to 
speculate on what will replace 
the familiar "heeeeeere's

Dieting in today's society is almost mandatory; it is also nerve

Mad mentality dominates programs 

by Mike Chumney 
Business Manager 

The sophisticated techno- 
logical society that surrounds 
us grants relief from many 
mundane and menial tasks 
that only a generation ago 
consumed hours of daily life. 

Thinking about the many 
physically-exerting chores that 
are done for us by machines, I 
can see how it came about that 
a majority of people today no 
longer read, but prefer to 
watch TV instead. It's easier. 

I wouldn't say one way or 
another that this is wrong. 
Who am I to knock progress? 
Indeed, there is a tre- 
mendously powerful potential 
that lies in the concept of TV. 
That luminous screen can 
attract my attention in an 
unexplained manner when I'm 
in sight of it. Even if I don't 
like the show, I'll sit there, 
make faces of disgust, and 
mutter to myself. 

Unfortunately, from my 
point of view, there are far too 
many shows that make me 
react in this manner. To be 
fair, there are some highly 
educational programs 
scheduled, but in an active bid 
for the Understatement of the 
Year Award, I would say there 
are many TV shows with no 
educational value. 

What do you see in prime 
time nation-wide television? 
What do people like? What 
does the average TV viewer 
think -about? 

Sex is a hot item. Either as 
insinuated ennuendoes, as in 
"Three's Company," the 
"Roper's," and the rest of the 
sitcoms, or in the beautitul 
forms of shows such as 
"Charlie's Angels"; sex is 

Violence is definitely an 
attraction. You can vicariously 

vent your id-like desires in the 
TV world of sports, police 
shows, and westerns. Maybe 
they should combine a little 
sex with violence? Or is that 
what they did with Police 

Like I said, people have 
been freed from the mundane, 
which could be the reason for 
this next type of program; the 
bizarre. AH the arts have 
experienced an abstract or 
strange element into their 
over-all make-up, but 
television has surpassed 
everything in terms of 
bizarreness. It seems that 
each year brings wackier and 
weirder shows to the TV 

People are no longer 
satisfied with human actors. 
We want to see talking horses 
like Mr. Ed. Or a chimpanzee 
driving a semi-trailer. A 
beautiful witch and a 
voluptuous genie who can cast 
spells by twinking her nose or 
shaking her head. Here 
they've got the sex and 
"bizarre "together. How could 
they lose? The number-one 
attraction for many people is 
an extra-terrestial named 
Mork? A puppet pig 
nominated for an Oscar? A felt 
frog hosting the Tonite Show? 

Then we have the "violence 
and bizarre" combination. 
This resulted in a wearisome 
and persistant rash of 
"super-hero" shows. Super- 
man, the Green Hornet, 
Batman, the Bonic Man, 
Woman and Dog, Spiderman, 
the Incredible Hulk, and 
Wonder Woman. In the case of 
Wonder Woman and the 
Bionic Woman, you have an 
unbeatable combination of 
sex, violence, and bizarreness. 

I don't exactly know the 

categoiy in which game shows 
should fall. Flashing lights, 
clanging bells, tic-tac-toe, 
hidden dragons, and dice the 
size of loaves of bread. Would 
you call that bizarre? 

Reaching the height of 
madness, shows such as the 
"Gong Show," the "$1.98 
Beauty Show," and "Real 
People" treat victim-viewers 
to visual delights of people 
who are trying to cash in on 
the bizarre interest in their 
bizarreness. Where will it 

I think I know the reason 
why TV has devloped along 
these lines. Did you ever read 
"Mad" magazine? they 
always had a section called 
"TV shows we'd like to see." 
Remember that? Wild and 
way-out ideas of shows that 
could only be the result of an 
over-actively, imaginative 

What has happened, I think, 
is that the creators of the new 
TV programs must have a 
complete back-order of 
"Mad" magazine and an 
unlimited tab at their local bar 
where they gather to discuss 
ideas for up-coming shows. 

Sad to say, there are 
probably great numbers of 
people out in TV land with this 
"mad mentality." When we 
read the magazine "Mad" 
we laughed with the creators, 
but somehow I get the feeling 
that rj t creators of today's 
television shows are laughing 
at us. 

At least I don't have to 
worry about offending any- 
body whose favorite show 
might have had fun poked at 
it; I doubt if they read this far.

Students meet PLATO. 

New aid for disabled 

by Bill Meredith 
Staff Writer 

In a day when many 
necessary advances are being 
made for the handicapped, 
PBJC has donated one 
advance not often thought 
about - a teletypewriter. 

The new machine will make 
it possible for deaf people to 
communicate with others by 
typing out a message which is 
conveyed by telephone. 

The money for the purhcase 
of the teletypewriter was 
donated by the Lantana Lions 
Club at a meeting Sept. 26. 
Dr. Edward M. Eissey, PBJC 
president, accepted the 
donation from Lantana Lions 
Club president, Joseph A. 

There are a number of 
different kinds of teletype- 
writers, but Continuing 
Education coordinator John 
Townsend anticipates that 
PBJC will purhcase a C-Phone 
model. He feels this model is 
the most practical because "it 
allows the entire message to 
be transmitted, rather than 

single lines." The unit is also 
lightweight and portable, 
making it usable at any 
electrical outlet. 

The C-Phone was developed 
in 1975 by a group of deaf 
teletypewriter servicemen 
from St. Louis, Missouri. Its 
features include instant recall, 
standard line width, automatic 
carriage return-line-feed, and 
eraser. The unit is 100% solid 
state and has a full one year 

"There are now C-Phones 
available to the community at 
Crisis Line, the Sheriff's 
Department, a major area 
hospital, and PBJC," said 
Townsend. He also reported 
that Dr. Eissey is planning the 
purchase of another non- 
portable C-Phone for future 
campus use. 

. A plaque acknowledging the 
Lantana Lions Club donation 
will be placed near the new 
machine, which will probably 
be installed in either the 
speech and hearing Center or 
the recently opened 
Handicapped Center. 

Students at PBJC might 
think of a famous Greek 
philosopher when they hear 
schoolmates talking about 
"PLATO." Actually, PLATO 
is an abbreviation which 
stands for Programmed Logic 
for Automatic Teaching 
Operations. It is a computer- 
based educational system that 
provides individual student 

Consisting of a television- 
like screen and a portable 
keyboard on which in- 
structions are typed, the 
sophisticated learning aid 
provides instruction in the 
form of text, line drawings, 
and an incredible array of 

Students can signal a 
response through the 
terminal's keyboard or 

responses are analyzed and 
feedback is given immediately 
to the student in writing 
illuminated on the screen. The 
computer keeps track of all 
progress and effort made by 
the student; moreover, the 
student can quit in the middle 
of a lesson, come back a week 
later, and the computer will 
start where the student left

system to help with lessons 
that prove difficult. One 
feature that PLATO utilizes is

Inflationary vote sought 

by John Eades 
Staff Writer 

The Palm Beach Junior College Political Union will sponsor 
three Voter Registration Days on Thursday through Saturday, 
November 15, 16 and 17. 

"We want inflation," boldly proclaimed Edwin V. Pugh, 
faculty advisor to the Political Union. 

' ' We want 15 percent inflation ... at the polls, "he added. 

The Political Union, at PBJC, the same organization that gave 
the world "Ret Siger" (register spelled backwards) and Nathan 
Hale Day designated "Inflation Day" to be set aside for voter 
registration, fugh says inflation and energy are two major 
problems facing the nation, and he suggests that they be put to 
the best use in the analogy of 15% inflationary participation and 
energy saving methods in property punching the ballot. 

The dates of voter registration key in with the state 
conventions of both major political parties to be held Nov. 17. 
The registration will be held in the cafeteria on Thursday and 
Friday and then will be moved to the lobby of the Allied Health 
Building on Saturday. 

Of the 15 members of the Political Union, David Meeks is 
president, Tracy Poth is the vice president and Carol D' Angio is 
the secretary. Mr. Pugh reports that any students that are 
interested in participating in governmental affairs and activities 
should seriously consider joining the organization.

The legal and social roots of 
the United States have been 
traced beyond Emperor 
Justinian's Byzantine bridge 
to Judaeo-Christian bedrock. 
Freedom of religion was 
guaranteed in this heritage 
but a Damoclean threat hands 
over our heads at the present 
time: "Are educational 
institutions prohibiting the 
free exercise of religion?" 

Historians agree that the 
6th century Bfantine 
emperor, Justinian, sed the 
Torah and Chrii unity's 
Gospels and Church letters 
when preparing the Corpus 
Juns Civilis. And this body of 
laws was translated into 
culture patterns throughout 

Eurasia through Christian 
educators and international 

Out of this root system came 
the Magna Charta (1215), the 
Petition of Rights and the Bill 
of Rights. In 1620, signers of 
the Mayflower Compact 
declared their venture was 
"for the glory of God and the 
advance of Christian faith." 
The First Fundamental Orders 
oT Connecticut (1638) 
established the Judaeo- 
Christian social and legal 
system for nearly all other 
state Constitutions when they 
verified the origin of all civil 
and government authority 
"vested in God." 

Unitedly, the authors of our 

Declaration of Independence 
declared, "the laws of nature 
and of Nature's God" gave 
credence to their intent for 
establishing a new nation. 
There was no need to redefine 
"general welfare," 
"Blessings," and "Liberty" 
in the opening statement of 
The Constitution of the United 
States. Every person living in 
a governmental relationship to 
that body of laws knew well 
the Judaeo-Christian frame- ' 
work of each concept. 
Furthermore, Article I 
declared, "Congress shall 
make no law respecting 
establishment of religion, or 
prohibiting the free exercise 
thereof ' ' 


The Bible is not a charm, an 
amulet, a fetish or a book that 
works wonders of itself as a 
book. But it is a Book filled 
with Divine words that will 
work wonders in everyday life 
and for the hereafter if acted 

The Christian does not get a 
new body, a different brain or 
another sensory mechanism 
when born again. But, a new 
manager--the Holy spirit-

JC's cheerleaders chosen 
from a pile up of females 


The JC women's golf team 
hoped to get off to a fast start 
this year after capturing the 
Junior College National 
Championships last year in 

Instead, they had to settle 
for a second place finish in the 
Pat Bradley Invitational 
Tournament. October 1-2. The 
girlsfinished just three strokes 
back of Miami Dade North 
after two days of competition. 

In the individual com- 
petition, Julie Kinch placed 
first, beating teammate 
Barbara Bunkowsky in a 
playoff. Both girls had shot a 
two round total of 152 before 
the playoff. 

Others participating for the 
team included Paula Slivinsky, 
Heather Jackson, Paula 
Chervenak and Sandy Lust. 

Although the fall golf 
season doesn't count all that 
much as far as standings go. it 
still gives the girls plenty of 
chance for tournament com- 
petition before the all 
important state and national 

tournaments later in the 

Even though they did not 
get off to a fast start, coach 
Debbie Ruday feels that the 
team will beat Maimi Dade 
North and could have another 
shot at national honor «. 

Most of this yea^c ieam was 
on last years championship 
squad, which lends credence 
to Ms. Ruday' s optimism. All 
that is really needed is for the 
last two spots to bring down 
their scores by a few strokes.

On Friday, October 1 2, President 
Carter's son Chip visited PBJC's SAC 
lounge to answer student questions and 
to encourage voter registration. 

Carter entertained questions from 
the audience on issues ranging from 
the 1980 Kennedy competition to the 
energv crisis. Afterwards, he remained 
to answer individual questions and to 
do a little extra campaigning. 

Tv\o of the most popular questions 
dealt with Kennedy and energy. Carter 
said he is one of the few who believes 
Kennedy isn't going to run. He 
disclosed, however, that since March 
his father's campaign has been built on 

leading once again, but a te>

the premise there will be a strong 
democratic threat. 

Carter also answered questions on 
the proposed new health plan as 
opposed to Senator Kennedy's. He 
predicted this plan will be out of 
committee in one year, and it will be 
able to meet the needs of every 
American in four years. Its success will 
be based on free enterprise. 

Also on free enterprise, Carter 
discussed deregulation of oil prices. As 
for future energy sources, his 
statement. "Nuclear power is clearlv 
not the energy source of the future," 
was greeted with cheers from the 
audience. But he added, "Until 
alternate sources arc developed, we 
cannot eliminate nuclear power." The 
funds for the development of 
alternative sources would be derived 
from the Windfall Profits Tax. 

Carter also favors the national 
decriminalization of marijuana, leaving 
prosecution up to the states. However, 
lie predicts it will take many years for 
the bill to pass. 

Carter stressed his father is 
pro-education. The fact that today one 
out of every tour college students 
receives some government financial aid 
supported his statement. 

Carter received some argument from 
the audience on the economy. Carter 
pointed out the Federal Reserve Board 
is a separate regulatory body over 
which the President has no control. He 
also received opposition due to his 
father's stand on SALT II. 

He encouraged students to "get 
involved in politics, register and then 
vote in the October 13 Democratic 
Caucus." He explained this caucus was 
the "first important test for the 
upcoming election."

"That's a pretty terrible 
turn-out," declared Mr. 
Donald Cook, SGA adviser 
who related the problem to 
student indifference. "Since 
we are not a live-in college, 

many students just don't get 
involved with campus 
activities. About ninety per- 
cent of the students work, 
which means that they come to 
the campus to attend class and

convention : what a site for sore eye 

Health Fair was plagued by lack of student participation 

Two weeks ago, the greatest aspiration that I could attain as 
an enthusiastic journalist was attending a statewide convention 
with fellow writers interested in the betterment ot their 
respective community college publications. Now, two weeks 
later, I realize the tremendous risk of being branded with such 
an acknowledgement. 

Three davs of seminars, workshops, lectures and instructions 
presented good intentions for congregated learning. However, 
when considering the Surfsidc Holiday Inn complete with 
discotheque on the top floor on the sands of Daytona Beach, my 
assumptions are embarassingly wrong. As a matter of fact, I was 
totally off-base. _, 

For example, Steve Homan, assistant news director ot an Ntse 
affiliate in central Florida, explained the advantages and 
disadvantages of television journalism, ranging from immediacy 
lo expense. Surprisingly, Homan was candid enough to state 
that the business doesn't generally use those who "look like 
dogs" before the camera. But later, my comrades poolside were 
unimpressed with his frankness. In particular, they said it didn't 
take an expert to figure out the svelte female in the blue bathing 
suit was much more deserving of an Emmy than the fat one in 
vellow. Upon my own observation. I concluded I had wasted my 
time with Homan. 

Obviously, going to a convention at Daytona Beach has 
opened mv"eyes that the sights are just as important as the site 
lor the attendants. I've returned to the subdued halls of PBJC, 
and although l hate to admit it, 1 still feel justified and a bit more 
comfortable in learning a wire editor's version of layout than 
Irom the suggestive minds of my companions.

"This is the last year that

ill sponsor a Health Fair," 
'declared Mary Cannon of the 
campus health clinic. 

"If there is another one, it 
will probably be held in a 
couple of years from now," 
she added. 

The Health Fair held last 
week in the SAC Lounge was 
plagued with apathy on behalf 

of the students. 

"It was probably just the 
rainy weather that kept the 
people away." explained 
David Baker who worked at

Labor honesty defeats political games 

The "little man" won 
Saturday, October 13! That 
was the date of the Democratic 
Caucus across the state, and it 
was when Palm Beach County 
labor delegates won by an 
estimated 61 percent. Let's 
hear it for the working people. 
The politicians' efforts failed in 
Palm Beach County. 

President Carter is a 
politician who ignores the 
norm. Even though both the 
Democratic Party and the 
Republican Party have re- 
allotled funds once meant for 
the 18 to 24 year old vote due 
to vouth's lack of response, he 
tried to get their vote. Jimmy 
Carter made a valiant effort to 
get the young involved by 
sending his son Chip to PBJC 
to campaign and to get people 

Seeing Chip was a thrill for 
some. 'The Democratic Party 
was victorious in registering 
many new voters. However, 
Jimmy Carter's delegates lost 
to labor's even after handing 
out free chicken at the caucus 

Kennedy, on the other 
hand, ignored the young and 
went after Century Village, 
literally. While Carter 
arranged transportation from 
PBJC to Forest Hill High 
School, the caucus site, 
Greyhound buses lined the 
street outside the high school 
with Kennedy posters on them 
and seniors descending from 
them. Kennedy even provided

Both candidates, therefore, 
offered an array of con- 
ventional campaigning spiced 
with the unusual. Each 
candidate offered a list of 
"their" delegates along with a 
plastic voting card to make 
voting for the "right" people 

The majority of the people 
present Saturday were not 
bothered by the campaigning; 
they wore * buttons proclaim- 
ing: "Tin proud to be Union." 
The union members gave 
parking instructions and 
voting instructions. It 
appeared the union 

members ran the caucus. 

The union members seemed 

unified, although the ca. 
itself lacked organization, 
union members were '■

were voting for thenise'

"I've been attending the

row, and this is the slowest it 
has ever been," he also said. 

Only 19 organizations 
showed up, much to the 
disappointment of Mary 
Cannon who expected many 
more participants. 

Among those that showed 
up were: The American 
Dietetic Association. The 
American Cancer Society, The 
Women's Medical Center and 
the American Red Cross 
booth. All were disappointed 

at the slow response.

that more students would 
show an interest in these types 
of activities," Mildred Baker 
of the Red Cross said. 

The Blood Bank only 
received 35 people who 
promised to make donations. 

The Health Fair arrived on 
the campus to provide the 
community with a means of 
knowing what services are 
available through various 
organizations and agencies in 
Palm Beach Countv.

Review Question: What does P.B.J.C. stand for'' 


P" stands for People, that is anyone: 

B" is for Believing (in or trusting) 

J"csus. God's Son who paid the penalty for sin; 

C ' hrist , the One promised in the Tanach or Hebrew Scriptuir , 

Today many psychologist find a lack of intimency in our personal relationships, and the Bible, m I 
Corinthians 13, we see some indicators of the true meaning of love with our loved ones, friends and 


An interesting note is that the King James Version of the Bible uses the word "Charity," in place of 
love; as the people of the 16th Century would put it a giving Jove, or a love that gives. 

And now I will show you the most excellent way. 

13. If 1 speak in the tongues d of men and of angels, but have not love, 1 am only a resounding gong 
or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecv and can tathom all mysteries and all knowledge, 
and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, 1 am nothing. 3 lf 1 give all I possess 
to the poor and surrender niv body to the flamesf but have not love, I gain nothing. 

d Loveis patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is 
not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Lo\e does not delight in evil 
bat rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, alwavs perserveres. 

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there ire tongues, they 
. 11 be stilled, where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in n,-i "id we prophesy in 
p irt."v°.iut when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11 When I was a child, i talked like a child, 
Viouaht like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put clnldi-h na\s behind me.

Eagles lacking in The Long Run Can you accuse a man of murder in Vietnam?

by Bill Meredith 
Staff Writer 

The Eagles, after a 
three- vear vacation, have 
finallv' released their sixth 
album - "The Long Run". The 
key word in that sentence is 
vacation, for the album can in 
no wav represent three years 
of work. If it does, then maybe 
they should have watted three 
more years. 

This is not to say the album 
is terrible, for it is not. It has 
some promising spots, but it 
far too often resembles the 
Eagles previous (and worst) 
album, "Hotel California." 
Manv felt this album was their 
best", but it lacked the 
versatility of previous Eagles 
albums and was just too 
dead-serious. "Hotel 
California" songs dealt with 
broken hearts, death, victims 
of love, and wasted time - not 
exactly light subjects. The new 
album" is not as serious, but 
lacks variety and shows no 
great deal of musical talent. 

"The Long Run" actually 
opens quite well. The title cut 
is quite catchy, with good 
rhythm guitar and heavy bass

Ballet Arts opens with Cinderella 

The Ballet Arts Company will begin its 
seventh season with the production of 
Cinderella at the West Palm Beach Auditorium 
on Nin ember 1 and 2, according to Aaron 
Cohen, consulting producer for the dance/ 
theatre production. 

"When the Ballet Arts Foundation presents 
the tull-leniith ballet. Palm Beach County dance 
enthusiasts will experience the first complete 
ballet ever produced by a local artist." Cohen 
said. "Baliei Aits' Artistic Director, Marie Hale 
has been a d\namic force in the growth of 
training and interest in ballet in Palm Beach 


"Now she is taking a giant step in her own 
uiiecr as a teacher-choreographer with the 
Jimwgraph\ ot this production. She has 
Jmrenaupiied J spectacle for over fifty locally 
turned dancers and actors." he continued. 
■The tXLcHence of her long established 
imputation led in 1973 , the creation of the 

company, and in 1974 to the evolution of the 
Ballet Arts Foundation, the non-profit 
orgaiwation which supports the company and 
school in West Palm Beach." 

Since that time the resident company has 
given over 75 performances at the Poinciana 
Playhouse. West Palm Beach Auditorium and 
has held several concert performances in college 
theatres, condominiums and free performances 
at public and private schools. 

Many of Hale's former students have gone on 
to professional careers on Broadway, in road 
shows and are dancers and teachers throughout 
the country, and area critics and art writers have 
recognized her contributions to the community 
through her training of the professionally 
oriented dancer and her continuing quest to 
bring lavish productions in the county. 

Tickets for the November 1 and 2 
performances of Cinderella are available at the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium and all seats are 

Timothy B. Schmit - the 
Eagles newest addition. 
Schmit then sings a fine vocal 
on "I Can't Tell You Why", 
one of the albums two 
outstanding cuts. After there, 
side one fails. Joe Walsh's "In 
The City" from the movie 
"The Warriors" is a poor filler 
- not one of his stronger works. 
And "The Disco Strangler" is 
just an offbeat mess. "King Of 
Hollywood" is a solid cut with 
good vocals from guitarist 
Glenn Frey and drummer Don 
Henley, the Eagles best 
vocalist. Frey and Henley are 
the only members left from the 
original Eagles lineup. 

Side two is lighter and a 
notch better than side one. It 
opens with "Heartache 
Tonight", a good-time boogie 
number co-written with Bob 
Seger. Glenn Freys vocal is a 
bit sloppy, but tlie track still 
works because of its 
spontaneity and singalong 
quality. "Those Shoes" is the 
album's second outstanding 
cut - a funky vehicle with 
double talk box guitars by Joe 
Walsh and Don Felder. 

"Teenage Jail" goes for 
nightmarish effects, and 
would probably work if the 
effects were not so overdone. 
The synthesizer solo on this 
track is Frev's best moment.

Ask for Mgr. 

by Bob Colip 
Staff Writer 

A masterpiece so complete, so totally 
eloquent in its portrayal of a period in 
history which thrived on brutality and 
mayhem has yet to premiere in movie 
theatres since "Gone With The Wind." 
Awesomely powerful, emotionally 
gripping; a scathing panorama of the 
bomb-scourged, death ridden Vietnam 
countryside: This is Francis Ford 
Coppolas "Apocalypse Now." 

Set to the bloody and inhumane 
conditions of a war which ended with 
no ultimate victor, "Apocalypse Now" 
cinematically advances one step further 
than movies of "The Deer Hunter" and 
"Coming Home" genre. 

Running slightly over two and a half 
hours and $20 million over budget, 
"Apocalypse Now" leaves the viewer 
emotionally drained by the finish. 
Words simply do not express the inner 
turmoil and trauma one experiences 
after viewing a visual production so 
technically perfect, and socially 
expressive that a synopsis falls 
tragically short of what Coppola has 
accomplished after nearly 12 years and 
$30.5 million spent since this project 
has been under development. 

From the onset, when communion is 
being held for battfe-fatigued soldiers 
during an attack on a village held by 
the Viet Cong, the viewer becomes 
aware of Coppola's masterful treat- 

ment and testimonial 
insanity of war. 

Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen and 
Robert Duvall cast total credibility to 
the battle-burnt individuals they 
portrav . Sheen, playing a CIA-type hit 
man sent to kill Col. Kurtz (Marlon 
Brando) shows true fiber in what 
realistically depicts the government 
ordered disposal of a gun-crazed 
anarchist who has formed an effective 
fighting force with fellow deserters and 
other mental degenerates. 

"Apocalypse Now"* reduces the 
viewer to a srate so humble, so 
demeaning, mat they possibly 
experience 1/100 of what that period 
might have been like. In the absurdity 

of mass killing and planned 
destruction, the question is raised: 
"How can you accuse a man ofmurderin 
Vietnam?" There can be no true 
answer, for the very question is an 
enigma which circulates around a 
senseless blood bath. 

Moving slowly at points, possibly 
more noticeably at the end, 
"Apocalypse Now" may find flaw in 
that it over stimulates the viewer. 
Never projecting anything less than 
sheer panoramic intensity, 

"Apocalypse" clearly approaches what 
may have been its total potential; but 
what is more significant is that 
"Apocalypse" is a tragic reality. It did 
happen, and as it was then, Apocalypse 
is now.

Soil is not often thought of 
as a precious commodity. 
Whatever happens, there will 
always be more, right? Not so, 
according to Dr. Robert Tate. 

Dr. Tate is a soil 
microbiologist from the 
University of Florida, and he is 
presently stationed in the 
Glades. He recently visited 
PBJC science classes. 

According to Dr. Tate, Palm 

Beach County is one of the 
biggest agricultural counties 
in the entire United States, 
raking in over one half billion 
dollars per year. But such 
abundance may soon cease 
due to loss of soil . 

Palm Beach County has 
been experiencing soil 
problems since the early 
1900's. A measuring pole was 
inserted in the soil in 1929 
and now five more feet of the 
pole is visible. That equals 

1-1/2 inches of soil loss per 
year, which leaves the county 
'with approximately 20 years of 
soil left. 

Dr. Tate explained that the 
soil loss is due to lack of water 
in the soil. Therefore, crops 
which flourish in high water, 
such as rice, are currently 
being researched. The water 
needed to grow the rice would 
also enrich the soil. 

In many places, there is 
usable material beneath the 

soil, but not in Palm Beach 
County. According to Dr, 
Tate, beneath the soil lies a 
bed of unusable limestone, 
one of the hardest most solid 
materials known to man. This 
fact makes Dr. Tate's work all 
that much more important. 

Dr. Tate is one of 25 
professors now stationed in 
Belle Glade. This crew 
researches ecological 
problems in the Glades and 
develops projects for a 
healthier environment.

Even us older folks have dreams 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Writer 

Well, all of us so called "He 
men" have outgrown those 
boyish sports fantasies, 
haven't we? We no longer 
collect thousands of baseball 
cards. We don't go to the 
ballpark every Saturday with 
our fathers and stuff our faces 
with red hots and root for the 
old home team, and we no . 
longer have those old sports 

So who are we kidding? We 
might not collect baseball 
cards or go to the park, but we 
still idolize those athletes. 

When we go out and root for 
the Reggie Jacksons, Guy 
Lafleurs, Bill Waltons and the 
O.J. Simpsons, are we really 
rooting for them and their 
teams or are we looking at 
them through ourselves and 
wishing we were in their 

When Reggie hits one of 
those homers, can't you see 
yourself in those famous 
Yankee pinstripes, watching 

the ball sail over the fence, 
hearing the crowd roar and 
knowing that it is all for you! 

What purpose does sports 
really hold? Every youngster 
dreams of becoming a major 
leaguer, signing autographs, 
and getting that million dollar 
contract. Fans wish they could 
be on the field and leading 
their team to victory. Sports 
are just a way to keep those 
fantasies alive. 

How many times do you go 
down to the old schoolyard 
basketball courts and see the 
kids mimicking the moves of 
"Clyde" Frazier and Earl 
"The Pearl" Monroe? 

Being at a sporting event 
brings out the realism of a 
sport; television doesn't. 
Why would a man pay fifteen 
dollars a ticket to watch a 
game when he can sit at home 
and watch for free? 

Being at a sporting event in 
person makes one feel more in 
the game. Being so close to 
the Field, the fan can see 
himself as a player, coach and 

referee all in one. He feels that 
every decision he makes could

play once a week, but still 
daydream about sinking that

Golf season is now in full swing 

Men disappointing 

The men's golf team continued their 
disappointing ways with an eighth 
place finish in the Dodger Pine 
Invitational, October 4-5, at Indian 
River CC, in Vero Beach. Only eleven 
teams competed. 

The Brevard "A" team captured the 
tournament, with their "B" team 
placing second. These two teams had 
scores well under par, thereby placing 
them well ahead of the other teams 

In the individual competition, Dave 
Pesacov continued to shine with a fifth 
place finish. His two day total of 146 
was even par. 

According . to * coach Jim Simons, 

Dave is "the only real bright spot so 
far in this disappointing season." 

The only other bright spot in this 
tournament was the improvement of 
Eric Larsen. Eric shot an 84 the first 
day of the tournament, but brought his 
score up to a 74 the second day. 

Otherwise, the rest of the team never 
got on track. "We must get better play 
out of our third, fourth and fifth players 
if we are going to turn our season 
around." Simons added. 

The men have but one tournament 
left to play. On November 1-2. they 
will travel to Edison Community 
College in Fort Myers to play in the 
Cape Coral Invitational. • 

Lady Pacers skid 

The PBJC women's golf team also 
suffered through a frustrating week. 
They finished eleventh in the Lady 
Seminole Classic. October 8-10, at 
Florida State University in Tallahassee. 
A total of sixteen teams competed in 
this event. 

Coach Debbie Ruday attributed the 
team's bad showing to the fact that 
they were playing against major college 
competition and that the girls just did 
not play up to their usual standards. 
The University of Georgia won this 
event going away. 

In the individual area, Barbara 
Bunkowskv and Julie Kinch tied once 

again, but their score of 227 for three 
days was only good enough to make the 
top fifteen. 

The girls team also needs better 
production from their third, fourth and 
fifth positions if they are going to 
repeat their championship season of 
last year. 

Coach Ruday feels that "the girls 
will turn themselves around and will 
start playing up to their capabilities 

The next tournament for the girls will 
be the Palm Beach Invitational at The 
President Country Club in Palm Beach, 
October 22. 23.

Senators debate policy 

by Michele Kurteff 
Staff Writer 

Wording, insufficient detail 
and shortage of clauses 
brought disagreement and 
debate between members of 
the SGA last Wednesday. The 
dlssention resulted in the 
'tabling of the issue. 

"We want students backing 
us on this. They are welcome 
at all meetings," asserted 
Senator Lisa Lautiainer. 

After a resolution is 
accepted by the senators, it 
must then go to the college 
Board of Trustees (BOT) for 
review and final approval. 

With the class withdrawal 
deadline today, hopes for an 
official change can not be 
expected. Policy changes 

would not go into effect until 
next semester. 

"We want students 
backing us on this. 
They are welcome 
at all meetings." 

In other action, the senators 
discussed plans to refuibish 
the game room. A committee 
was set up to investigate the 
possibilities of obtaining 
carpet and various pieces of 
furniture. "We would like to 
make the room a comfortable

Last minute preparations 

Heart screening 

Students, staff and faculty members of PBJC have the 
opportunity to participate in a Heart Risk Screening program 
offered in cooperation with the Heart Association of Palm Beach 

Testing takes place in the SAC lounge Tuesdays through 
Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. until noon. Appointments should be 
**iade in person at the Health Clinic with Mrs. Mary Cannon, 
R.-N. or Mrs. Gladys Anderson, secretary. 

Participants are asked not to eat or drink anything (except 
water) after 8:00 p.m. on the day prior to testing. All 
*riedications should be taken as usual. 

"The heart screening will last as long as we have enough 
People interested in being tested," stated Mrs. Marge Adams, 
Program Director for the American Heart Association (AHA) in 
£*alm Beach County. "So far, we have had a good student 

"We are getting a cross section of people. Many of these 
People don't get regular physicals. We discover heart problems 
^Jxat participants weren't aware they had," commented Mrs. 
Elinor Peters, R.N. of the Visiting Nurses Association. 

Since 1972, the local Heart Association has screened 
[^proximately 14,000 persons. The screening has since 
^.anched out to many industries and institutions. 

"The reasons behind the screening is to discover conditions 
l^hich may result in stroke or heart attack, such as overweight, 
^*3ih blood pressure, excessive blood cholesterol or fats, 
5r *ioking, family history of heart disease or diabetes, and lack of 
2>c ercise. 

Participants will be asked to give a short health history, have 
*»eir weight and height recorded, as well as submit to blood 
e sts, an EKG and a check of blood pressure. 

"Xhe results of the test are strictly confidential and are mailed

were completed for those 
students who attended the 
Florida Junior College Student 
Government Association 
(FJCSGA) conference in 
Tampa this past weekend. 

Students present at the 
conference were Senators Guy 
Bair, Lisa Bennett, Bev 
Boltosto, Mauiice Ergueta, 
Winston Walker, Colleen 
Walsh and officers Polly 
Young and Robert Cobb. 

The highlights of the 
convention, according to Dean 
Robert Moss, Vice President 
of Student Affairs, included 
the elections of state SGA 
officers and action that was 
brought before the legislature. 

President Young distributed 
attendance requirement 
surveys to other junior college 
SGA presidents. The surveys 
will be used as references for 
further PBJC SGA meetings.

Complex inquiry-BOT 

With two of its members 
absent, the Palm Beach Junior 
College District Board of 
Trustees met for the second 
time in regular session Oct. 

Despite the vacant seats of 
Vice Chairman George 
Michael and Susann Anstead, 
the agenda went routinely. 

Barbara Matthews, of the 
Social Science Dept., opened 
the activities of the meeting 
with a presentation on the 
resolution designating Nov. 3 
and 5 as PBJC International 
Year of the Child Observance 

Mrs. Matthews, speaking 
on behalf of the Early 
Learning Center, clarified the 
dates to ensure participation 
on the campus, and the 
resolution was swiftly 

The next item on the agenda, 
however, raised legal 
questions. A study group 
established by the BOT to look 

into the feasibility of an hotel 
and apartment complex at the 
college has, according to 
trustee Mrs, Frances Hand, 
encountered the snags of 
judicial jargon. 

"We have three areas to 
research," added James 
Adams, PBJC attorney, citing 
statewide, local and zoning 

The Board hopes some of the 
problems will be resolved by 
the next meeting. 

The last issues on the 
agenda, adopting the State of 
Florida's Resolution to 
support the concept of Global 
Education, approving person- 
nel items, and finalizing the 
bid on the printing of the 
college catalogue, were all 
accepted without disfavor. 

Career Day nears 

Preparations are underway 
for the 16th annual College 
and Career Day to be held in 
the Palm Beach Junior College 
gym Thursday, Nov. 8 from 9 
a.m. to 1 p.m., according to 
Gwen Ferguson, PBJC 
counselor, coordinator. 

The event is held annually 
in cooperation with the Palm 
Beach Personnel and 
Guidance Association headed 
by Kim St. Bernard, counselor 

at Westward Elementary 

Junior and senior high 
school students and their 
parents from both public and 
private schools in Palm Beach 
county have been invited. 

More than 80 representta- 
tives of educational institu- 
tions, business, industry and 
the military, have already 
signified they will attend, 
Miss Ferguson said. 

Deaf no longer "dumb" with teletypwriter 

BurqeiKinq-Req US Pal Oil W> Burger King Corporf 

To some, a conversation over the 
phone between Dr. Edward M. Eissey, 
president at PBJC, and Dan Mica, U.S. 
Congressman in Washington, would 
probably entail political chatter. But for 
those impaired with the loss of hearing, 
it means the beginning of an 
opportunity on campus to "speak" 
with others as a result of two recently 
donated teletypewriter (TTY) 

Last Thursday afternoon. President 
Eissey demonstrated the unique 
devices. Similar to a keyboard hooked 
up to a telephone, the TTY relayed 
salutations across the video screen 
1000 miles apart. 

Transmitted Mica, "My warmest 
regards to all present. I commend 
PBJC and the leaders of the community 
in this effort. It is said that people who 
love people are the happiest people in 

the world, and you are people who 
help, and that makes you the luckiest 
people in the world." 

For the approximately 22 deaf at the 
college, the demonstration initiates a 
new understanding that being ' ' dumb ' ' 
no longer exists with the stereotyped 

John Townsend, a coordinator of 
Continuing Education, said that one 
machine would be placed permanently 
in the Registrar's Office, and the other 
will be portable, so that it may be 
moved from place to place on the 

The TTY, which has a visual display 
developed by telephone engineers, was 
donated by the Lantana Lions Club last 
month. The other teletypewriter, given 
by the Telephone Company Pioneers, 
types out the messages similarly, but 
on paper.

Pornography - Peddling Prof it$ 

PBJC radio station struggles to remain on the air 

To the schoolboy, it excites curiosity. 
To the adolescent, it impassions the 
benefits of puberty. To the ancient 
Greeks, it meant the "writing of 
whores." It is pornography, and 
although Aristotle and the kid-next- 
door might have approached the 
subject differently, it holds a tense line 
over law, followers, and money. In 
other words, adult entertainment 
builds blatant big business. 

Ironically, pornography finds a 
comfort in society established with laws 
for the good as a whole. The First 
Amendment guarantees our freedoms 
of speech and press. The Fourth 
Amendment prohibits illegal search 
and seizure. Yet based on these such 
rights held so virtuous, the financial 
rewards generally outweigh the risks, 
specifically thanks to decisions made 
by our Supreme Court. 

In 1957, for example, the landmark 
Roth decision drew out the distinction 
between "sexual" and "obscene" 
materials, declaring what was sexual 
was not necessarily obscene. In 1966, 
the Court further defined obscenity as 
it pertained to porn: 

1. It had to appeal to prurient 

2. It had to affront community 
standards in sexual candor. 

3. It had to be without utterly 
redeeming social value. 

Obviously, the technicalities of the 
highest bench thrived on ambiguity, 
and it wasn't until 1973 that a ruling 
totally based obscenity's definition 
on the standards of a community. 
Perhaps it was a federal cop-out, but 
the scene was set for businessmen who 
knew the value of blue. 

Of course, our communities across 
the nation aren't made up of harmful 
deviates and perverts dressed in 
raincoats. But since the sexual 
revolution of the '60's, our attitudes 
have changed in the acceptance of what 
previously was considered as 

"disgusting". Today, 30 percent of all 
newstand sales come from periodicals 
that onlv 20 years ago might not 
lawfully had been there. 

"In the first years after 1969, there 
was a pent up need which could be 
satisfied by pornography," suggested 
Leo Mads'en, the most successful 
pornbroker in Denmark. "Now this 
need has been satisfied." 

Indeed, according to Forbes 
magazine, the ten leading "skin 
mags", such as Hustler, Playboy and 
Penthouse, maintained in 1978 a 

monthly circulation of 16 million, 
generating close to S475 million. That 
same year, adult theaters seated two 
million viewers each week at an 
average ticket price of $3.50. 

With approximately 780 porn houses 
nationwide, a S365 million gross easily 
mounted. Neither hail, nor sleet or 
snow stopped smut either. A post office 
survey conducted in 1970 revealed 50 
million adult advertisements were 
being pumped through the mail

Included in WPBC's plans 
are interviews, news, weather, 
information, era music and 
sports, along with the 
traditional programming of 
rock, jazz, and other music. 

"The station is not a toy, it's 
to be used to introduce 
students to different kinds of 

music and as a learning tool," 
said Wink. 

According to Moss, "every- 
one goes into this with big 
expectations," and he 
recommended the allocation 
be cut when he noticed that 

"performance and operations 
began rapidly deteriorating 
during the course of the year. 
There were some good 
workers there, but overall, it 
had deteriorated."

Dear editor: 

The Democratic caucus on Saturday, Oct. 13, proved that 
unless you are connected with a well organized group, you have 
no chance to be selected as a delegate. Not one independent, 
uncommitted delegate was selected. 

What was evident was that each fraction had a slate of their 
own candidates and were not interested in anything but pushing 
their slates through. 

The faction with the most voters elected the most delegates. It 
was not a question of quality but of quantity. 

This present method is discriminatory. It needs a face lift. 

The Republican caucus gave everyone a chance. They put all 
the names in a drum and then picked out the required amount. 

This method gave the uncommitted, independent delegate a 
chance to be selectd to represent his party at the State 
Convention in Orlando in November.

Blondie's "Eat To The Beat 
Lacking their original flavo 

Winter wear for Florida causes wonderment 


It wasn't too long ago when 
people were afraid of Blondie. 
Who are these people? 
Nobody seemed to know. Well, 
when "Heart of Glass", as 
disco sounding as it was, made 
everyone listen the mystery 
puzzle was solved. "Those 
people" they were seeing in 
pre-arrival publicity photos 
were actually a band and not a 
bunch of thugs. Moreover, a 
band that could fuse Heavy 
Metal, Pop, and Disco with 
New Wave. 

Yes, "Parallel Lines" was 
an album that generally was 
well received by the critics. 
And yes, it did succeed in 
making New Wave more 
popular, but it presented itself 
as being just a little too cute 
for its own good. On that 
album they succeeded in 
performing their musical 
combinations well but they 
also tried to make several of 
those songs sound as 
commercial as possible-which 
was a mistake. 

It undermined the 
refreshing New Wave concept 
of the album. Now the girl 
with high heels and her 
entourage of five is back with 
another one, "Eat to the 
Beat". Like "Parallel Lines" 
it is successful in carrying over 
it's musical combinations 
however, there are dangei' 

Deborah Harry's a star now, 
and that's all good and fine 
but after several listenings of 
this album there are obvious 
indications that the blonde 
miss now knows who she is. 

The first side of this album 
is a barrage of New Wave 
sounds, agressive guitar work 
coupled with a hard driving 
rapid beat. Side two possesses 
those previously mentioned 
danger signs. It begins with 
"Die Young, Stay Pretty". 
Great song but it's reggae and 
not in the least New Wave at 

While two other songs 
side two, "Slow Motion" i 
"Living m the Real Wori 
are New Wave in tl 
structure.the remaining sf 
digress from that structure 

Blondie claims that it's 
New Wave band. If tk 
genuinely the case t 1 
Deborah Harry and 1 
Stein are going off on binf 
Perhaps the time this b. 
spends epxerimentmg sh» 
be devoted to perfecting: 
sound that they originallj 
out to develop and m 
popular in this country a ! 
years ago. 

"Eat to the Beat" is re 
bad album. It's perforr 
beautifully. The danger lip 
the fact that Blondie could t 
up like some of the other g- 
bands that have t 
introduced something r 
either dissolved and nial 
solo albums that don't se* 
on the teen-age so 
card-the top 40 charts. 

PBJC Players present award winner "The Shadow Box 

bj Bill Meredith 
Staff Writer 

The Palm Beach Junior 
College Players will present 
"The Shadow Box" in the 
PBJC Auditorium November 
9-11 and 16-18 The pro- 
duction will be the fust of the 
season, and all shows will 
begin at 8:14 p.m. 

Matinee performances will 
be piesented Sundays, 
November 11 and 18at 2 p.m., 
according to Frank Leahy, 
faculty director. 

The play deals with a very 
serious and emotional subject 
- tetminal cancer. Author 
Michael Cristofer chose this 
subject after learning that two 
of his close friends had 
terminal illnesses. 

Elizabeth Kubler - Ross' 
book "On Death and Dying" 
was published about thistime, 
and Cristofer reports in a 
newspaper story, "When I 
read her book the whole 
experience came together for 

Dr. Kubler-Ross reports 

that people pass through five 

stages when dying: denial and 

isolation, anger, bargaining, 

"pression, and acceptance, 

' Cristofer confirmed these 
nations with his own 
with doctors and terminal 

n thinking about my 
ii lends impending deaths, it 
occured to me that everyone 
alive is terminal, and thats a 
funny sort of situation, 

especially since it's so carefully 
avoided, " says Cristofer. 

He also pointed out that 
theie was a substantial 
difference between people 
aware of their own mortality 
and those who were not. "If 
your life's on the line, it 
certainly affects your relation- 
ships with others," he says. 

The Shadow Box involves 
three terminal cancer patients, 
each living in separate 
cottages on the grounds of a 
hospital. Each is seen being 
visted by or living with their 
loved ones, and the only 
connection between the three 
cottages and their inhabitants 
is an interviewer (played by 
Gary Williams). 

In cottage one, the patient is 
Joe (Darin dePeahul), a 
middle-aged construction 
worker who is beginning to 
accept his illness. His wife 
Maggie (Gayle Davis) hasn't 
yet quite adjusted and his son 
Steve (Gary Messick) has not 
yet learned of his father's 

In cottage two, the patient is 
Brian (Jim Lewis), a bisexual 
writer. He is a very smart man 
who is quite aware of what is 
happening and has come to 
grips with it. Mark (Michael 
Coppola) is living with Brian, 
but is still easily shaken by the 
mention and idea of Brians 
illness. Beverly (Terri Byers) 
is brians ex-wife, who is 
visiting and sometimes 
making a mockery of the 

In cottage three, the patient 
is Felicity (Jessie Allen), a 
bold, elderly woman who still 
has quite a sense of humor. 
Agnes (Mary Peak) is her 
daughter, who is keeping a 
secret from Felicity that may 
be what is keeping her alive. 

The play is being directed by 
Frank Leahy, with assistance 
from student directors John 
Fayssoux, Robert Bradshavv, 
and Gwen Jones. The set is 
being designed and construct- 
ed under the supervision of 
Arthur Musto and Gary 

"The Shadow Box" was 
originally called "News From 
The City Of Hope", after the 
hospital which had established 
a program which is the basis 
for actions in the play . 

The eventual title was 
suggested when a niece of a 
friend of Mr. Cristofer's came 
home from school with a 
shadow box she had made. ' 'It 
seemed like an appropriate 
title", he says, "because a 
shadow box delineates a tiny 
scene and throws light on it so 
you can see it more clearly." 

He also liked the idea of 
shadow boxing, fighting an 
unseen enemy. 

"The Shadow Box" was 
quite a hit with critics, for it 
won both the Pulitzer Prize 
and Tony Award in 1977 - a 
feat which only nine previous 
plays have accomplished. 

The play deals with serious

Being from New Jersey, I 
was definitely used to those 
cold northern winters. I was 
always ready with my boots, 
mittens, wool hat and my 
snorkel jacket like a sheriff is 
ready with his gun to fight off 
that desperado. 

After hearing that my family 
was to move to sunny Florida, 
expecting nothing but warm 
and sunny weather, I quickly 
disposed of all of my winter 
clothes, and went out to 
overstock in both tee-shirts 
and shorts. Our planned date 
for moving to Florida was 
November 22nd, and I 
couldn't wait to hit the 

Arriving on a typical sunny 
day, and later settling into our 
new home, I decided to check 
out the stores in beautiful 
Downtown Delray Beach. Well, 
I couldn't believe it! I figured 

it must of been the store "that I 
was in; that being, good old 
K-Mart. It wasn't. As I visited 
stores such as Burdines and 
Jordan Marsh, I saw the same 
things for sale as I did in 
K-Mart. Now I always thought 
thai Florida is supposed to be 
warm during the Winter. How 
else could people come back 
from Florida during Christmas 
vacation looking so tan? 

What surprised me so much 
was how those stores could 
sell winter clothes. I figured 
that the stores were just 
wasting their time and money 
selling the heavy clothing. 
Who in their right mind would 
buy winter clothes in the 
"Sunshine State"? Well, the 
people did! When it got down 
to that "freezing" temp- 
erature of sixty degrees, they 
all came out with their heavy 

I started to feel paranoid 
when still wearing my ever 

present tee-shirts. 1 remained 
very warm knowing that the 
sixty degrees we had was sixty 
degrees more than I would of 
had if I was back in New 

What was wrong with these 
people? Was it that they lived 
too close to water, and they, 
like the fish, became thin 
blooded? Was it that they 
were just too used to the 90 
degree weather and anything 
below that was time for them 
to heat their home? 

It still remains quite strange 
to me. Looking in the stores 
again this year, I notice still 
the same happening. One 
thing that bothers me more 
than anything is that the same 
people that are so cold at sixty 
degrees in Florida, are the 
same ones who used to go 
jacketless when it was sixty 
degrees back in their old 
states of New York and New

Two career-minded students earn scholarships

Staff Writer 

Robert Cobb, a PBJC 
sophomore, received a S250 
scholarship from the Palm 
Beach County Hotel 
Association's Frank Williams 
Memorial Scholarship Fund at 
an awards luncheon at the 
Breakers Hotel on October 

Cobb, 19, majoring in 
Hotel-Motel Restaurant 
Administration was "over- 
whelmed with joy" as he 
received the news of the 

Besides being Vice-President 
of the Student Government 
Association. Cobb maintains a 
3.48 grade point average while 

attending classes at JC and 
going to work in a busy local 
area restaurant. Having 
moved down here without his 
family, Cobb was very relieved 
to obtain financial assistance 
for his education. 

Vivienne Rae, who classifies 
herself as ' 'over 25 but still not 
middle aged," is the recent 
winner of the Kelly Services 
Second Career Scholarship, 

"Other women can use me 
as an example," she pro- 
claims, referring to her 
personal philosophy, "you're 
never to old to start something 
new." s

begin a career in some sort of 
business operation where she 
can employ her skills and 
education to the job. This is 
what the Kelly Services 
Second Career Scholarship is 
designed for. 

Rae is a participant in 
community affairs, being 
everything from a Brownie 
Scout leader to a Little League 
Baseball team mother. 

She had been out of school 
for 30 years and had to take a 
GED test before starting 
classes at JC. 

"I thought I would have to 
start in kindergarden," she 
said. "I appreciate getting the

Kathleen Cockrell, a re- 
cently hired JC employee 
involved in the Cooperative 
Education Program, is assist- 
ing students with disabilities. 

Also, a course in 
Employability Skills will be 
approved for next term, and 
she will serve as the instructor 
for this course. 

As a job development 
specialist for disabled 
students, she is counseling 
their special needs, and she is 
primarily investigating their 
physical and professional 
abilities, rather than dis- 
abilities. From there, she will 
try to match up their abilities 
with an appropriate job. This 
is where the Cooperative 
Education Program comes in. 

"CO-OP ED gives students, 
as well as disabled students, 
whether physical, learning, or 

economic, a unique oppor- 
tunity to explore career 
possibilities otherwise thought 
to be impossible," she 

"It can excellerate the 
progression of the minority

industry, and other 

Kathleen, also wishes to 
meet with employers in the 
open field and convince them 
that their on the job 
performance is just as 
productive as any other 
person's performance. She 
strongly believes, "That once 
students with disabilities are 
given an opportunity, they are 
eager to use it in order to 
prove themselves." 


"The co-op program allows 
employers to take a 'real look' 
at how a person with a 
disability functions within 
their job," she points out. 

A course in Employability 
Skills, also headed by Mrs. 
Cockrell, will be approved for 
next term. This course is part 
of the co-op program 

The course will relate to job 
search, successfully holding 
the job, and what employee 
homework should be done. It 
will cover such skills as, 
writing a resume correctly, 
Jetters of applications, proper 
conduct at interviews, on the 
job human relations, and 
career goals and objectives. 

Prior to her job at PBJC, 
Mrs. Cockrell worked with 
disabled students and taught 
three years of high school.

NHL promises tougher competition

There are four new teams 
entering the NHL this year 

after leaving the now defunct 
World Hockey Association.

during the season. 

The reason tor the over-

Wightman Cup brings over 
the best Great Britain has 

by Rodney Cook 
Sports Editor 

On November 2, 3, 4, the 
Wellington-Palm Beach Polo 
and Country Club will host the 
fifty-first edition of the 
Wightman Cup, which 
involves a feminine tennis 
team from the United States 
playing against a team from 
Great Britain. 

The competition was the 
brainchild of Mrs. Hazel 
Hotchkiss Wightman, who 
\vas looking for a women's 
version of the men's Davis 
Cup. Mrs. Wightman, a noted 
doubles player, brought up 
her idea in 1921 and it was 
rejected at first. 

But, in 1923J a representa- 
tive from Wimbledon came to 
see Mrs. Wightman. He 
proposed that a match be 
established between the finest 
female tennis players in the 
United States and Great 
Britain once a year. The 
United States Tennis 
Association appioved and the 
Wightman Cup competition 
\vas born 

The Wightman Cup is a 
twentv-three inch sterling 

silver trophy worth about 
thirty thousand dollars. When 
the United States wins, the 
Cup is stored in a showcase in 
Cartiers, on Fifth Avenue in 
New York City until the next 
competition. When Great 
Britain wins, the Cup is kept at 
the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis 

This year's British team is 
headed by former Wimbledon 
champion Virginia Wade. 
Other players include Sue 
Barker, a well known tennis 
veteran, Anne Hobbs, JoAnne 
Durie and Debbie Jevans. 

The team from the United 
States is captained by Chris 
Evert, one of the top players in 
the world. The second player 
on the team in this year's U.S, 
Open champion Tracy Austin. 
Otheis on the team include 
Rosie Casals, Kathy Jordan 
and Ann Kiyomura. 

There is some question as to 
whether enough interest in 
winning is being shown by the 
United States. Three of our top 
the players - Martina 
Navratilo\a, Pam Shriver and 
Bilhe Jean King are not

In the fifty years of 
competition, the United States 
holds a 40-10 advantage over 
the Britains. Last year, 
however, Great Britain

Flag football year 
coming to an end 

by Bill Meeks 
Sports Writer 

On a warm and sunny Flag Football Saturday morning, the 
Beachcomber Bombers met the Scro Connection in gridiron 

The Bombers drew first blood with James Walker's 
touchdown run. Walker then ran around the end for the extra 
point, making the score 7-0. Rodney Cook scored on a pass from 
Walker to make the score 13-0. Before the extra point attempt, 
Rodney picked up the ball and spiked it over the goal post in 
jubilation. The extra point attempt failed, leaving the score 13-0. 

Sam Hodges of the Scro Connection ran it in to make the score 
13-6. Ross Sanders then scored for the Bombers, making the 
score 19-6. The Scro Connection's Ken Hilgendorf intercepted a 
pass and ran it in for the score. Hilgendorf added the extra point 
to make it 19-13. 

The Scro Connection tied the score, 19-19, on a touchdown by 
David Lenz. The Bombers came back to go ahead 25-19 on a 
touchdown by James Walker. David Lenz took a pass from Mark 
Howell to tie the score 25-25. 

Ross Sanders of the Bombers intercepted a pass to halt a Scro 
Connection drive in the fourth quarter, so the game went into 

The Scro Connection, with 4:03 left on the clock scored on a 
roll out pass. Quarterback Mark. Howell, behind a block from 
Glen "The Scro" Stewart passed to David Lenz for the winning 
score. Final score, Scro Connection 31, Bombers 25,

Can anything be done about football injuries? 

by Jim Hayward 
Sports Writer 

It's been more than a year 
since Darryl Stingley, a pro 
football player with the New 
England Patriots was 
paralyzed as a result of a 
collision during a preseason 
football game. Since then, no 
major steps have been taken to 
solve this dangerous problem. 

Stingley collided with Jack 
Tatum of the Oakland Raiders 
with 1:26 to play in the second 

quarter of an exhibition game 
played in Oakland, California. 
The hit occurred as he ran a 
short 14-yard crossing pattern, 
one Stingley ran hundreds of 
times before. When quarter- 
back Steve Grogan's pass 
spiraled ahead of him, 
Stingley dove for the ball. As 
Stingley dove, he collided with 
Tatum, the combative Raider 
safetyman nicknamed "Black 
Death." Tatum' s helmet and 
shoulder pads smashed into 

Stingley's head as his body 
came down, open and 
unprotected. Stingley fell to 
the ground, and never moved 
again. Tatum did not think the 
tackle was a dirty play, 
claiming football is a contact 

This most recent tragedy 
opens people's memories to 
past incidents. Mack Lee Hill, 
Chuck Hughes, Howard 
Glenn, and Stone Johnson all 
died as a result of professional 

football. Hill died in 1965 
during a knee surgery 
operation; Hughes was felled 
by a heart attack on the field in 
1971; Glenn died following a 
game in 1960 from a 
combination of heat 
prostration and a broken 
spine, and Johnson suffered a 
fractured vertebra in his neck 
making a block in 1963, dying 
eight days later. 

Of course, these are limited 
cases; however, most players

"With the seminar, they will have an 
opportunity to first discuss the play, and how 
the terminally ill characters face death, and then 
discuss death and dying as it relates to them, a 
subject very difficult for many. ' ' 

Any student who misses this first post-play 
discussion will have a chance to take part in the 
second seminar which will be open to the public 
after the Sunday, Nov. 11, 2:00 p.m. matinee

Talk is Eissey 

"Wednesday with Ed", introduced last month with keen 
interest from the student body, will convene for the second time 
in the campus cafeteria Nov. 7 at 10:00 a.m. 

The novel program opens the PBJC President to a question

various interests before him. 

Issues expected to be rasied before Dr. Eissey include the 
present attendance policy, the situations of the campus radio 
station and other organizations, proposed assemblies, and 
student-oriented costs. 

Last month, the class-administrative encounter brought new 
insight to various topics generally left undiscussed. However, a 
larger turnout had been anticipated.

Vietnam veteran solicits salvation studioOnefor more than basicdancing skills 

As Veteran's Day approaches, the public's of Vietnam were aggravated after his discharge, ViSJ 

As Veteran's Day approaches, the public's 
thoughts of those who have served our country 
are, unfortunately, not as predominant as the 
memorial justifies. But don't tell that to PBJC 
student Hector Mendoza. 

Mendoza, 29, spent a good part of his young 
adulthood harboring the problems left him by 
the Vietnam War. Ten years ago, the 
native-born Puerto Rican donned an Army 
uniform, leaving the Americanized surround- 
ings of his hometown, Cayey, and Benjamin 
Franklin High School. Within seven months, his 
troop training in aircraft maintenance brought 
him to the front lines of Southeast Asia, 
repairing helicopters. Believing in "Our concept 
of freedom", Mendoza was called upon to put 
down his wrench and take a gunner's job in the 
rear end of a chopper. 

"Morally, I accepted it," he recalled, "I was 
not discouraged, and I'm proud to have been a 

Patriotic words, undoubtedly, but the 
comment seems a bit twisted coming from a 
man who spent three months in the psychiatric 
ward of a hospital after his discharge. 

However, that's the point. The critical times 

of Vietnam were aggravated after his discharge, 
when life was off the battle fields and in the 

"I was disoriented. I was depressed and 
rebellious. I turned my back on friends," 
reflected Mendoza sadly. "I had more problems 
adjusting to civilian life than I did with the war. I 
had a fighting chance there. .but not a chance 
here. ' ' 

Thus, Mendoza believes the true meaning of 
Veteran's Day is lost. Although it is supposed to 
honor the veteran, our society looks at him 
through civilian eyes. Mendoza doesn't want to 
be considered a former serviceman. 

Today, the PBJC student has found faith in 
God, and leads a happy, healthy life. Moreover, 
he has discovered faith in humanity. 

"I want to study human development. I want 
to give people guidance and help them with 
their problems, ' ' he related. 

Once an efficient soldier, he now hopes for 
the day he can attend his studies in Tennessee 
to become an efficient minister. Without 
question, if setting out "To serve and not to be 
served" can be accomplished by anyone, Hector 
Mendoza will serve. 

Vending machines vex users 

Strike another one up for the 
campus vending machine, the 
monster that eats up our 
money and leaves us standing 
with our hands and mouths 

Take the case of Sandy 
Sunshine who deposited 25 
cents into the coffee machine 
and got her coffee "extra 
Iight"-minus the cup. Sandy's 
lost money has made her 
reluctant to use other vending 
machines and can now be seen 
sporting a thermos. 

Then there's the incident 
experienced by Jim Jock at the 
candy machine. Jim drops in 
his change, selects his candy 
bar and is stunned by the 
incredible noise the machine 
lets out. He wishes his 
Snickers would have come out 
instead. Jim's anger over this 
incident results in his briefing 
the baseball team of what 
happened and vowing never to 
put another cent into the candy 

Finally, there is the example 
of Cheryl Chic who selected a 

diet Tab from the pop machine 
and v\as given a calorie packed 
Coke as a substitute. The 
alternate drink ended up in the 
trash. Since Cheryl will not 
touch anything but a diet 
drink, she has decided to go to 
the cafeteria to purchase her 
low cal beverages. 

As our money is being 
swallowed up by the many 
vending machines on campus, 
we do have the choice to go 
elsewhere when our 
stomachs start to growl.

conspicuously trying to scare the daylights out of each other. 

Perhaps it was inevitable that the two traditions would ck

a young boy was struck by a car and killed. 

There has been speculation that the hit and run was not!, 
less than murder; that the motorist aimed for the child. But t 
cannot be proven until the driver and the vehicle are found. 

The Jupiter Police Department Detective bureau has issue

The car is described as a white two-door Oldsmobile with a- 
colored roof, said to have its rear jacked up, tinted windows 
side view mirror and the front grill separated from the car. TV

Pontiff "Live" 

When this record first came to my attention, I honestly thought 
it was part of a joke. During the Weekend Update segment of 
Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago, Father Sarducci was 
announcing his "Find The Pope in the Pizza Contest", and while 
holding up a photograph of a pizza supposedly containing the 
pictures of all the pontifs in history, he said he would "play for 
our enjoyment the Pope's latest album recorded live from 

Although the segment was typically satiric, the record he 
mentioned was no joke. 

So now that the record stores across the country are displaying 
Pope John Paul II's album next to Donna Summer's "Bad Girls", 
Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall" and scores of other top 40 
latest releases, I'm looking forward to more public figures 
recording themselves singing at other appearances that made 

One particular one I'm waiting for is Ted Kennedy singing Paul 
Simon's "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover" from the bridge at 
Chappaquidick. (You'll remember that one— "Just slip out the 
back. Jack.. .make a new plan, Stan.. .no need to be coy, Roy.. .just 
listen to me..."). 

Others I'm going to look for include the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission Chorus singing "What's the Buzz, Tell Me What's 
Happening", Philadelphia's mayor Frank Rizzo and "Free Me 
From My Freedom (or Tie Me To a Tree, Handcuff Me)", "The 
Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" by President Carter (should 
be out by next fall) or possibly even Walter Mondale with 
Enough is Enough." 

Yes, it looks to me like the recording industry has taken the 
Pope s Live album and opened up new avenues for public 
appearances., .and one more way to make money.

One would have to search 
long and hard to find a group 
of an\ kind with more 
expeiience, diversity, and 
talent than Santana. 

Throughout years of 
personnel dunces, the band 
has, amazingly, been able to 
sound and perform just as if no 
changes were made. And they 
do just that on their latest 
album "Marathon." 

Gone from the 1978 "Inner 
Secrets" album are lead 
vocalist Greg Walker, key- 
boardist Chris Rhyne, and 
percussionist Pete Escovedo. 
Such a loss would panic many 
lesser bands, but Santana 
never even misses a stiide, 
mainly because of their strong 
nucleus and some excellent 
new personnel. 

"Marathon" contains fine 
performances by new 
members Alexander J. 
Ligcrtvvood (vocals/ihythm 
guitar) and Alan Pasqua 
(keyboards), plus much more. 
The title song opens side 
one - a brief, powerful 
instrumental in the Santana 
tradition. "Lighting in the 
Sky" contains the first in a 
series of impressive vocals by 
Ligertwood, and some great 
guitar by the master - Carlos 
Santana. "Aqua Marine," a 
beautiful instrumental, show- 
cases the entire band. David 
Margen's pulsating bass line 
highlights some Fine percussion 
by Raul Rekow and Armando 
Peraza, while Carlos Santana 
and Alan Pasqua are equal to 
the challenge on guitar and 

"You Know that I Love 
You" is an Eddie Money-ish 
tune (they toured together in 
78) which is quite different 
and surprising, and "All I 
Ever Wanted' climaxes side 
one with powerful percussion 
and guitar riffing by Mr. 
Santana and Chris Solberg. 
"Stand Up/Runnin" opens 

side two with excellent work 
by the Samanaihvtlimsection. 
Bassist Margen absolutely 
scorches his solo, and 
diummer Graham Lear, one of 
the woild's best, gets in some 
rips also. ■'Summer Lady" 
contains another fine vocal by 
Ligertwood and more quality 
guitar work by Carlos Santana. 

"Love" is a powerful tune 
with good lead and backing 
vocals, while "Stay (Beside 
Me)" lightens things up a bit 
with a catch\, rythmic bass 
line. Pasquas piano solo on 
this cut is breath-taking. 
"Hard Times" thunders the 
album to a close with some 
vigorous drumming and 
percussion by Lear, Rekow, 
and Peraza. 

There are few flaws on 
"Marathon." Carlos Santana,

Could you imagine a college 
without an intramural 
program or a college that only 
offers a select amount of sport 
activities towards school 

It may be hard to believe, 
but here at PBJC, the sports 
activities are now starting to 
dwindle. For example: girls 
volleyball has come to an end. 
Not because of lack of funds or 
because of lack of coaches, 

but, because of the students 
did not show enough interest. 

Was it because students 
were too lazy too sign up? 
Probably. There are many 
girls out there who would love 
to join a program such as 

There are a surprisingly low 
number of participants in first 
semester intramurals. With 
such sports as tennis, bowling, 
jogging and flag football, one 
would expect an exceptional 
turnout. There were onlv 

about forty participants in flag 
football competition. There 
should have been double that 
number. Students did not 
realize that they did not have 
to sign up by team, the could 
have signed up individually. 

Competition in all sports is 
equally balanced and gives 
great exercise. No one is 
frowned upon because of size 
or looks. All sports are kept 
under control by first class 

When signing up for your 
required physical education 
classes, why not take 
something different. If you are 
an expert in bowling and still 
plan on signing up for that 
class to get an A, then why not 
try to look for a sport 
mat you have never tried or 
know little about. If you just 
sign up for an "A" sport, then 
all you are doing is wasting 
your time and money. By 
signing up for a different 
course, you are actually 

helping yourself physically. ; 
Don't worry about losing ani 
"A", you won't have to worir 
that hard to get it back. I 

So get out and join these 
classes and activities, If you= 
let them pass by, you ml; 
never again have another 
opportunity to sign up for 
them again because the ncs* 
time you look, they won't W; 
there. So get off your seat ai# 
sign up; this may be your las!

The Palm Beach Junior College baseball team, the Pacers, will 
be starting their season shortly. Coach Dusty Rhodes will be back 
again this year as their number one man. 

"I think the Pacers will do well this year; the team has good 
potential. We lost our whole infield from last year, but we did 
keep three of our four outfielders and both of our catchers. ' ' 

This year's Pacer team is lead by sophomore pitcher Randy

Did you ever watch those 
old movies or read about the 
British Nobility who would get 
up at the break of dawn, 
mount their horses, sound the 
horns and gallop off in search 
of the most cunning animal of 
all, the fox? 

If you would like to 
experience this for yourself, 
the Palm Beach Fall and 
Winter hunting season is 
about to begin. 

Anyone wanting to learn the 
traditions and protocol of 
English Fox hunting is invited 
to attend preliminary sessions 
for indoctrination. The time 
and place will be announced 
later. The first hunt is 
scheduled for ■ after 

There will be a series of 
training hunts and no horse 
will be needed for these. 
J °ggitig shoes or boots are 
recommended, plus enough 
stamina to run from three to 
five miles. 

The area to be used fo 
these training hunts is on fitf 
hundred acres on the west sii . 
of Jog Road bisected by Fores 
Hill Boulevard. The wes

Something really worth collecting

There are so many so called 
"sports nuts" around our 
country these days. Quite a 
few of these people enjoy 
collecting sports momentos of 
different sorts, whether they 
be bubblegum' cards, 
pennants, programs, photos or 
the like. 

I collect something totally 
different though. Most every

sections in the newspapers or

quotes; either controversial or 
funny. Here are some of my

John Wayne, on why he

weren't many alleys that 
would let me come back.^ I 
have an overhand delivery." 

Al McGuire, retired

"I come from New York where

Voting for three special positions, 
Student Government Association 
senators marked ballots for a president 
of Pro-tem, a secretary of finance and 
a secretary of publicity and 
publications at the Nov. 7 meeting. 

Due to discrepancies in parliamenta- 
ry procedure at the last meeting, a new 
election for the president of Pro-tem 
was conducted. Senator Joe Brown was 
awarded the position, taking over the 
post from Senator Bill Watts. 

Brown's job will require him to fill in 
for Senate President Bobby Cobb 
should he be absent from a meeting or 
resign. "I will give Bob all the help he 
needs. I will make myself available 
whenever necessary," stated Senator 

Les Markham was nominated as 
secretary of finance and will assist SGA 
treasurer Steve Solieri. In the absence 
of Solieri, Senator Markham will give 
the financial statements at senate 
meetings. Markham's experience in 
this area includes handling monetary 
expenditures for Food Services and 
working as a night auditor. 

In charge of news releases, Senator 
Guy Bair will serve as secretary of 
publicity and publications. Bair has had 
some journalism background.

President of Student Affairs and as 
Cobb put it, was "torn apart." A 
revision of the report is presently in the 

Student Government President Polly 
Young informed the senate that they 
were officially on the Board of Trustees 
(BOT) meeting agenda on Nov. 21. The 
senators will go before the BOT with a 
case for a revision in the current 
attendance policy. 

On Nov. 8, Young and Cobb met with 
seven department heads to get their 
impressions on the proposed SGA 
resolution which would hike the 
excused number of absences from 10 
percent to 15 percent. 

The teachers present had divergent 
views regarding the policy. Said one 
instructor, "attendance is crucial in 
some fields such as health." Another 
stated, "it's very difficult to have 
someone make up work. Some of it

Politicians, voters bask in SUNplace special 

by Kevin Bair 

While students and the 
public will enjoy the 
opportunity of a special voter 
registration drive complete 
with a "coffee shop" 
atmosphere inside the 
cafeteria this Thursday and 
Friday mornings from 8 a.m. 
to 12 noon, politicians will be 
given the chance of an enticing 
invitation to come to "SUN- 
place Special: Palm Beach 
Junior College." 

"SUNplace Special," a new 
diplomatic slogan, was 
developed by PBJC Political 
Union advisor Edwin Pugh in 
an effort to bring campaigners 
to the area during the colder 
periods of other states. 

"We'll start spreading the 
word about SUNplace Special 
at the state straw ballot 
conventions," Pugh 
commented, referring to the 
Republican and Democratic 
gatherings meeting at 

Orlando, Nov. 17 and at St. 
Petersburg, Nov. 16-18, 

Representatives attending 
each convention for the college 
are Robert Lynes, campus 
Republican Club leader, and 
Watson B. Duncan, III, 
Communications chairman. 

Meanwhile, students 
attending classes Nov. 15 and 
16 can register to vote m an 
untypical fashion. 

"We're going with the idea 
ot entertainment." remarked 

Pugh, "with music, singing... 
sort of like in a coffee shop. ' ' 

Additionally, according to 
Pugh, registration will be done 
without a dependency on 
piofessional personnel. "We 
are grateful to Mrs. Jackie 
Winchester for training and 
deputizing some of our 
interested students, so that we 
now have our own deputy 

Pugh also noted that the 
significance ot obtaining 
voters and reaching politicans 

"points to March 11, 1980," 
when the primaries take place 
in the state, 

In past years, some 
presidential hopefuls visiting 
PBJC included Hubert 
Humphrey, Henry (Scoop) 
Jackson, Shirley Chisolm, 
Ronald Reagan, George 
Wallace, Milton Schapp, and 
Tom Anderso. 

Reaffirmed Pugh, "we think 
the whole community benefits 
when important political 
figures pay attention to us. ' '

Television in America - for better or worse? 

Tuesday, November 12, 1979 BEACHCOMBER 3 

Television has become the number 
one means of entertainment for the 
American public, and it is frightening. 

Bv the time children are five years 
old,' they have watched an average of 
24 hours a week of TV; a typical 
teenager has watched at least 15,000 
hours of TV and during that time has 
witnessed 350,000 commercials and 
18,000 murders. 

From a study done by Mary 
Montessoir. it has been proven that by 
age five, children have their highest 
intellectual capacity for learning. Other 
studies show that television is the 
number one teacher of children besides 
their parents 

There are numerous shows which 
plots surface as sex and violence, such 
as Three's Company and Kojak. The 
Dean of Anneburg School of 
Communications in Alabama, George 

Gerber. said this of video box: 
"Television has profoundly affected 
the way in which members of the 
human race learn to become human 
beings." Such as the case with Ronnie 
Zamora who killed a young teenage girl 
and said that Kojak gave him the 
feeling that murder has become 
accepted in today's society. 

Of course, TV can be a great influence 
for the better with shows such as 
Sesame Street and 60 Minutes. 
Documentaries are strong but too few. 
Shows like "Roots" and "Holocaust" 
gave the public the truth of these 
remarkable stories. 

Within the last few years, TV, 
because of public pressure, has shied 
away from violence to shows with sex. 
The problem with TV is that it doesn't 
look at the consequenses of its shows. 

Watching television too often does 

take away from a child's school work. 
Children no longer have to do the 
thinking for themselves, but they let 
the TV do it for them. Kids no longer 
read as much as they used to and the 
school aptitude tests do show a steady 
decline. Both of these aspects are 
related to the over abundance of poor 
TV watching habits. 

It has been said that families should 
watch television together or that 
parents should choose the shows for 
their children. What good does that do 
when the parents watch such "great" 
shows as "Charlie's Angels" and 
"Hello Larry?" 

Television does help the viewers in 
some aspects of society. It does bring 
about sexual awareness in such things 
as homosexuality, prositution and 
incest. These topics are put there to 
bring out awareness so people won't 

flinch and turn red when hearing these 

Times have definitely changed m TV. 
In the show, "I Love Lucy,' Lucy had 
said that she was pregnant, and 
because of this the censors kayoed it. 
Boy, how times have changed. 

TV executives do not apparently 
realize that when they do put on a first 
class show as "Roots" their ratings will 
go up and they are helping this 
overladen TV crazy country of ours. 

Television certainly does have its 
good points but, its bad aspects far 
outnumber the virtues. There definitely 
has to be an investigation into the type 
of shows TV gives us. What we need Is 
a real comedy, a nail-biting suspense 
story, and a true to life cop drama, 
Maybe if we start with one, television 
will change for the better. 

Coping when Death knocks 

"Pale Death, with impartial 
step, knocks at the poor man's 
cottage and the palaces of 

Odes, I, 4 

Perhaps one of the greatest 
common denominators among 

people is death, cliche* as it 
sounds. We all are inevitably 
embraced by death. As it is 
often put. we are all 
"terminal" cases. 

This basic truth has 
prompted billions of hours of

sought to help expiaui Hie 
mystery and ease the sorrows 
oi death. Most religions teach 
that theie will be an 

"afterlife" of one form or 
another. The painful thought 
of death might be soothed by 
this belief. 

Perhaps then, the degree of 
religious faith in a society 
might be a factor in 
determining the cultural 
reaction towards death. This 
could possiblv explain why our 
highly secularized 

thecnologieal society has 
shown such a social aversion 
towards the subiect of death. 

It has been awkward to talk 
about death, at least m the

C letter ) 

ir Editor, 

ecently we had the privilege to be elected to 

le Student Government as senators to 

.epresent the voice of the student body. We also 

would like to say "Thank You" to those who 

irned out to vote for us. Our reasons for 

anting this office is very apparent to those 

horn voted for us as per the last article of the 

eachcomber concerning the Senate and the 

work being done, knows our every effort is 

directed in those areas of our election platforms. 

Recent articles spoke of "Student Apathy," 
however, if by chance any student is available 
for the Senate meetings held every Wednesday 
afternoon at 2:30 in BA 126, will see this is not 
true of all those elected to office of the Student 

However, in the next few weeks with one of our 
major projects in the works, we need active 
involvement from all areas and diverisfied age 
groups of campus students, We have an 
"Open-Door" policy in our Senate meetings, 
and you are cordially invited to attend. 
Attention brings change and your attentions are 
wanted and needed by the Senate. 

Your Student Government, Senate, and all its 
committees belong to the student, so assistance 
is available to you in order to help get answers 
to many problems that arise among peers that 
often counselers, faculty and administrators are 
not even aware of. 

Often as not, students who face problems, 
whom by appearance seem unsurmountable will 
avoid the red-tape of trying to find the right 
channels in order to be heard. This is just one of 
the many responsibilities accepted by the 
senators, whom are all willing to help find the 
right channels, if not already known. 

Requests have already been made by some of 
the student body and we can gladly say that 
those requests have been honored and answers 
have been found. Support was sought and 
support was given. Voices spoke and voices 
were heard and voices were respected. So, 
during our involvement, remember, "LET'S 
GARBAGE." We ran for office because we care 
and lets make this a fantastic year for those of us 
who are now, and those who will follow, because 
we, the student body set the pace. 

Your senators, 

Student Government Association

"Wednesday with Ed" 

by Michele Kurteff 
Associate Editor 

At an informal gatheiing of 
"Wednesday with Ed" last week, 
college president. Dr. Edward Eissey, 
responded to students' questions and 
comments on assorted topics. 

The most popular inquiry directed to 
Dr. Eissey centered on his'views of the 
Student Government Association 
(SGA) attendance policy petition which 
was recently circulated throughout the 

"The petition does not have my 
support. It does not impress me in any 
way, shape or form," expressed Dr. 

Dr. Eissey feels that "students have . 
a recourse "when attendance and conflict! 
occurs. "Individuals can come to the 
president's office. Every student is 

"I have stated publicly that flat 
tires and car troubles are not counted 
as absences. I won't allow individuals 
to be unduly withdrawn," furthered 
Dr. Eissey 

In addition to his remarks on the 
attendance resolution, Dr. Eissey 
stated, "the SGA must go through the 
proper channels," citing Dean Robert 
Moss and Mr. Charles Graham, 
Registrar as examples. "An orderly 
procedure needs to be taken," he

"Dimension System" 
scheduled to be completed by 
Dec. 1. 

This unique computerized 
system will allow in-coming

eliminating the assistance of a

College personnel will 
attend special training 
sessions this week which will 
teach the proper procedures of 
the new system. 

"This super, fantastic 
process will make things move 
much faster. It will be a great 
benefit to the college, " 
commented Mrs. Mary 

Tingler, Communications 

One of the advantages of the 
system is that people will now 
be able to have third party 
lines. Conference calls to all 
departments can now be made 
anywhere on campus. 

Since the beginning of the 
fall term, installation has been 
occuring. Evidence of this is 
the large ditches all over the

Pacer roundball starts Thursday 

by Rodney Cook 
Sports Editor 

The PBJC Basketball team 
will start their season with a 
home game on November 15, 
at 7:30 p.m. against Florida 
College. The Pacers will then 
take on Manatee Junior 
College on Saturday, 
November 17, at 7:30. Both 
games will be played at the 
PBJC gymnasium. 

This year's team is a 
question mark. According to 
Coach Joe Ceravolo, "There 
are just too many variables 
with this team to be able to 
predict how well we will do 
this season." 

Last year Ceravolo won 
"Coach of the year" honors 

for junior colleges in the stare 
of Florida. He received the 
award after leading the 
1977-78 Pacers to the state 
championship and finishing 
seventh in the nation. 

This year, Ceravolo's job 
appears to be much tougher .To 
improve on last year's dismal 
9-19 record, Ceravolo must 
rely on some very in- 
experienced players. The only 
veterans returning are Roger 
Williams, Bob Webster, 
Howard Hoskin and Ray 
Vincelette. This lack of 
experience will hurt the Pacers 
in the close games. 

Other players on the team 
include Edwaid Moss, Lee 
Cushman. Dennis Graham, 

Jeff Washington, Charles 
Pauldo, Louis Fuentes, Ben 
Bryant, Paul Matton and Jim 

"We're limited in the 
number of out-of-state people 
we can get, so we have to rely 

on local people and walk-ons," 
commented Ceravolo. 

The team has a new 
Assistant Coach, Mr. Ira 
Bryant. Bryant is a former 
player of coach Ceravolo's. 

After the opening games, 
the Pacers will play in a 
Thanksgiving Tournament at 
Miami Dade North. They will 
be competing against other 
Junior Colleges from around 
the state.

Intramural football 

In intramural flag football competition, the R.B. Boys continued 
to stick it to the rest of the league by wiping out the second place 
Y-Bangers 41-19. The R.B. Boys kept their record perfect at 5-0 
while the Y-Bangers record slipped to 3-2, 

The R.B. Boys defense was devastating, creating many 
opportunities for their offense, which they quickly took advantage 
of. The R.B. Boys team of George Ojea, Mike Schanley, Dale 
Bullard, Troy Huffstetler, Bubba Hughey, Ralph Urena, Frank 
Sulkowski and Joe Simpson all participated in the scoring. 
Simpson and Hughey had especially good games, each scoring 
touchdowns at least twice. 

In other intramural news, the racquetball tournament is 
entering its second week of competition. To find out about your 
match, check outside the intramural office in the gymnasium. 

The intramural office is considering starting a basketball 
league. If anyone is interested in participating, go see Ms. Weber 
in room 4K of the gym.

The Student Government 
Association (SGA) set a 
tentative date of Jan. 19 for 
PBJCs annual Homecoming 
atlheNov. 14 meeting. 

Plans of a basketball game, 
parade and picnic at John 
Prince Park are in the making 
by Beverly Bottosto and Bill 
Watts, dual committee chair- 
persons. They will be assisted 
by Senators Maurice Ergueta, 

Mark Mitchell, Winston Wal- 
ker and Colleen Walsh. 

"We hope to have activities 
planned throughout the whole

In other senate happenings, 
it was unanimously agreed to 
hold a Goodwill Charity Drive 
slated for Dec. 6-8. The 
ptoject, headed by Senator Joe

FDE survey proposes 
common college calendar 

By Michele Kurteff 
Associate Editor 

The state of Florida Department of Education recently issued a 
bulletin and survey to community colleges and state universities 
concerning the proposal for a common academic calendar. 

Should a common calendar result, students enrolled at 
community and state schools would attend classes and vacation at 
the same time. 

"It is widely believed that a common academic calendar would 
do much to facilitate improved coordination and articulation of 
programs and students among the community colleges and 
universities in Florida," states the bulletin. It went on to say, 
"The need to place the public postsecondary institutions on a 
common academic calendar as a means of making the two plus 
two community college/university concept work more 
effectively. ' ' 

Students were warmly greeted to school last 
month, when the PBJC- North Student Activity 
Committee (SAC) sponsored a "Welcome Back 

"The major purpose of the event was to 
familiarize students with the fact that the North 
Campus does have their own student 
government," stated John Jenkins, counselor of 
the 45th Street Campus. "SAC is here to 
represent the students and to listen to their 
thoughts," he added. 

The social was held at the 45th Street Campus 
on October 15th and 16th and for the night 
classes (Howell Watkins and Palm Beach 
Gardens High School) it was held the entire 
week. "It was highly successful and we received 
100 per cent cooperation from all of the students 
involved," Jenkins commented. 

Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Beta Lambda 
helped assist in the serving of refreshment and 

"SAC will be making this an annual event at 
the beginning of the Fall and Winter terms for 
all of the North Campus students to enjoy," 
Jenkins concluded. 

Phi Beta Lambda, the business organization 
of the North Campus, had their initiation of 
officers and members on Sunday, November 21, 

The newly elected officers were the first to be 
sworn in. They are as follows: President- 
Glenn Aurelius, Vice-President— Bill Van, 
Secretary of Correspondence— Robin Aurelius, 
Secretary of Permanent Records — Charlotte 
Rebillard, Treasurer— Julieann Dow, Historian 
—Sharon Vickers, Public Relations Reporter— 
Marjorie Goldsmith, and Parlimentarian— Ter- 
ence Youngblood. 

New members admitted into PBL are: Bill

Students pondering Iranian problem 

The over-all feeling of the American people 
toward the situation in Iran is one of rage, 
hatred and frustration. The terrorist- type 
siezui e of Americans in Tehran effects students 
at Palm Beach Junior college as it does others 
around the country. 

Students and teachers had various attitudes 
and comments concerning the troubles in Iran. 
When asked to give their feelings the 
individuals had the following to say 

Debra Jensen, an Accounting major, "We 
should give the Shah back to Iran, but other 
than that, I do agree with what Carter is doing. " 

Brian Addison, a Law Enforcement major 
commented, "Send the Marines in, we have 
been pushed around long enough." 

A student who wished to remain anonymous 
proclaimed, "Carter is doing a good job. He is 
following good diplomatic procedure. I don't 
think that we should give the Shah back to Iran, 
We are holding our ground, and in world 
opinion we are right; they are wrong, and 
because of it we will win oui. The deportation of 
Iranian students is a good idea. " 

Mitch Lowe, Business major, "Cut off the aid 
to Iran and send the Iranian students back to 

Sandy Morgan had these thoughts, "I do not 
mind the Iranian students being here as long as 
they do not cause anv trouble " 

Beckie Thompson, a Math major had this 
opinion, "If they kill any of our people, then we 
should send military troops there." 

Mrs. Eleanor Myatt, a Social Science teacher, 
"President Carter is doing the best he can 
under the circumstances. If Carter sent the 
Marines, there would be trouble. It is not the 
same situation as in Entebbe. We are now 
dealing with a whole country, not a small 
regime. The American hostages would be killed 
if we sent the Marines in. Khomeini is a 
religious fanatic, he is not a real diplomatic 
leader. What he is doing is a type of blackmail. 
It's a very ticklish situation. ' ' 

A former PBJC student who would like to 
remain anonymous said, "Sending in troops is 
not necessary; it is not good policy. The sending 
in of troops would distress the young people of 
this country who are not over the horrors of the 
Vietnam war. We should just have the troops 
who aie aheady in Iran. We should definitely 
use tact and diplomacy in the handling of the 

Physical Education major, William Branca 
gives his views, "Americans are being kicked 
around too much. Carter is doing defensive 
things, he is not a good leader. If one of the 
hostages gets killed, we should go in there. We 
should show them that we are not scared . ' ' 

Taste the pride of Canada. 





Who really WOn? \They must be kidding 

Dear Editor, 

Congratulations to the R.B. 

Big Boys, who defeated the 

Y-Bangers Thursday to clinch 

the PBJC intramural flag 

"xrtball championship. The 

ig Boys won the game 

indily, but if they gave out 

sints for character and 

scipline, the Y-Bangers 

3uld have won hands down. 

le Big Boys amassed over 

ni hundred yards in penalties 

for unsportsmanlike conduct 
and personal fouls, (one of 
which was for hitting the 
referee) They humiliated and 
berated the official, call after 
call; and incited arguments at 
every possible opportunity. 

I will not condemn their 
entire team for the actions of a 
few, but the players who need 
to read the rule book and take 
a lesson in sportsmanship 
know who they are. 

Does this sound like sour, 
grapes? Well, possibly it is. I 
was embarrassed for myself 
and for my teammates to be on 
the same field as our 
opponents. Congratulations to 
the Big Boys? Hell no! I 
congratulate the Y-Bangers 
for showing some class on at 
least one side of the 
scrimmage line. 

Robert Bryde 
Captain, Y-Bangers 

Dear Editor, 

Seeing as the semester is 
almost over, we would just like 
to say that we think you have 
done a really terrific job in 
getting first-hand information 
to the students. Not only have 
you informed us but you have 
been a neutral party and 

shown us both sides of the coin. 
We hope next semester the 
student body can expect the 
same kind of excellence, in 
fact, we know they can.

Pacers roll over Florida College 

By Rodney Cook 
Sports Editor 

The 1979-80 edition of Pacer basketball got under way last 
Thuisdaj night as the Pacers rolled over visiting Florida College 

Leading the Pacers was Howard Hoskin, who popped in 20 
points. The rest of Che Pacer scoring was well balanced, three 
plavers scored 13 points. 

The game got off to a slow start, each team making many 
mistakes during the first ten minutes. After this though, the play 
began to improve steadily. 

Throughout the first half, both teams seemed content just to 
trade baskets. The Pacers were getting most of their points off 
offensive rebounds, many of them by Hoskin and Luis Fuentes. 

Towards the end of the half, Florida College began to take 
control of the game The Pacers were not taking many good shots 
and Florida College was getting easy fast break opportunities 
because of this. At halftime, the Pacers trailed by the margin of 

At the start of the second half, the Pacers came out with a full 
court press to try to create opportunities of their own. This gamble 
failed as the Falcons repeatedly burned the press for easy 
baskets, raising the score to 55-50. 

The Pacers then began to loosen up, outscoring the Falcons 9-2 
to grab the lead. Charles Pauldo hit the go-ahead basket and the 
Pacers never trailed afterward. 

The Pacers extended their lead to 70-63, and the game 
appeared to be heading to a rout. But the Falcons came back 
quickly to pull within two points and it seemed that the Pacers 
were doomed to lose a game that they had a certain lock on 

The Pacers came back to score, but twice the Falcons burned 
them with full-court passes for easy baskets. The Pacers still kept 
then composure and led 81-77, with 1.29 remaining in the game. 

The Pacers called time-out and Coach Joe Ceravolo put in a 
three guard offense to try and freeze the ball. These guards found 
repeated holes m the Falcon defense and they passed off to the 
big men for easy points. 

There are several new faces on the Pacer squad this year. 
Fuentes, Jeff Washington and Greg Jackson are the most notable 

A good thing about this win was that Ceravolo was able to use 
his bench throughout the game. This will add needed playing 
experience for the more important games later this season.

(To this point, the top honcho of the religious system in Israel 
came to Jesus one night. The man's name was Nicodemus and he 
was a ruler in Judaism. Each time Nicodemus questioned Jesus 
about his teaching, Jesus said, "You must be born again." 
Finally, Nicodemus said, ' 'How can this be? " 

To which Jesus replied. .. )

not accept our testimony I have spoken to you of earthly things 
and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of 
heavenly things. No one has ever gone into heaven except the one 
who came from heaven-the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up 
the snake m the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that

Eissey "not impressed" with petition 

It seems quite strange that 
there are so many inadequa- 
cies in the attendance policy 

The Student Government, 
supposedly the voice of PBJC 
students, came out with a 
petition against the current 
attendance policy which said 
that a student can only miss, 
ten percent of his or her 
class . If the student missed 
more than the ten percent that 
student would be dismissed 
from the class no matter what 
grades the student had at that 

The petiton was shown to 
PBJC President Edward M. 
Eissey, and his reply was that 

"Petitions donot impress me." 
Well, this answer was 

Petitions are a way for the 
public to speak its mind. 
Eissey knows the feelings of 
the students; they do not want 
the ten percent system, nor do 
they want the old twenty-five 
percent system. All they want 
is - ^ compromise between the 
two, They are asking for a new 
policy of 15 percent. Eissey's 
stand is a stubborn one.' 

At a board meeting this past 
Wednesday, Eissey said this 
about the teachers' feelings 
toward the present attendan- 
ce policy, "The Palm Beach 
Junior College teachers are 

unanimously for the ten 
percent absenteeism system." 

According to some PBJC 
teachers, they were never 
asked about their feelings 
toward the system nor were 
they even for the current 

Eissey once said, "If the 
students have a good excuse, 
then it should be expected by 
the teachers." This definitely 
contradicts Eiskey's attendant 
ce policy. In other words, a 
student could have flat tires all 
week and be excused because 
of that. If that is exceptable to 
Eissey, then why not the 
fifteen percent asked for by 

Students are at school to 

learn and are responsible 
enough to attend classes when 
they can. What about the 
commuter students who come 
here from as far away as 
Jupiter and Delray Beach? 
Traveling so far, every day, 
four months of the year, and 
missing only four classes can 
not be accomplished by all 
commuteis, not even being 
absent due to sickness. 

If a student does not attend 
classes regularly, because of &■ 
lackadaisical attitude, then is 
that student getting their 
money's worth or a true 
education? No. The attendan- 
ce policy would not effect 
these types of students, only 
the ones who are only here for 

that one reason; to get a good 
education for the outside 

Maybe Dr. Eissey should 
stop worrying and notice that 
the students here at PBJC 
have their rights as students 
and as citizens. Where else 
but at PBJC can a petition be 
ignored by the college's 
President? If someone doesn't 
get "impressed" by the SGA 
petitions, then who will? 

There is definitely need for 
a resolution between the new 
proposal and the current one. 
A 15 percent resolution seems 
to be sufficient, and Eissey 
must not hide his awareness of 

Anybody suffering? Only the students 

The administration at Palm 
Beach Junior College takes 
pride in the fact that as 
educational institutions of 
higher learning around the 
state and the nation are 
showing declines in enroll- 
ment, this campus is tallying 
record student admissions. 

Indeed, statistics from the 
Registrar's Office signify 
entrances of more than 9000 
students, following the ever- 
growing trend PBJC 1 has: 
experienced the past se.ver.aj „

fiscal fidelity. Ironically, as the

Dear Editor, 

I would like to suggest the 
school revise its attendance 
policy. The revision I advocate 
is movement to unlimited 
absences. This change would 
allow the "Beach Bunnies" to 
sign up for their classes, get 
their financial payments and 
disappear to the beach, where 
they belong. It would get them 
out of my way; allowing my 
instructors and myseif to tend 
to the business at hand. 

I am tired of having classes 
delayed up to fifteen minutes 
for social gabble by the 
non-learners. I am tired of 
having instructors drowned 
out and hampered by these 
warm bodies. Getting these 
individuals in and out of the 
way is the most productive 
step the school can take.

needs of various departments 
and facilities are valid 
applications of student-in- 
duced funds. Yet with the 
abolishment of the Student 
Activity Fee (SAF) and 
Committee last year, there 
exists one major discrepancy 
that should be questioned by 
all PBJC students. 

The activity budgets of 
1979-80 are, like all prior 
'years, based on trie^drfecHMf* 
'* of "monies-' 12 months pasV So ' 
in this instance, the tuition 
and SAF (which was the last 
time gathered before its 
demise) of 1978-79 dictated 
the costs of student services 
that are now under the final 
examination of Dean Moss. 
Now, according to the 
college's fiscal report of last 
year, at least $144,613.90 
should be clearly spent on 
student activities. However, 
this year's budget of the sum 
of the costs of all services 
accounts for only $139, 188.45. 

If, by circumstance, the 
difference of $5,425.45 is 
meaningless,' then the eviden- 
ce that a fee of $144,613.90 
derived from the report's 
accounted $2,347,533.80 mar- 
ticulation collection is a 
serious setback to students. In 
1976-77, for example, an SAF 
$143,522 was amassed from 
tuition totaling only $1,405,- 
885. In 1977-78 it was $166,229 
out of $1,898,475. Incident- 
ally, figures show that before 

Dr. Edward Eissey took office, 
and under former PBJC 
President Harold 'Manor, 
student services were actually 
allotted greater budgets than 
were based on activity fees 

But if this all sounds like 
frustrating economics, then no 
more an interesting comment 
could have been made by one 
Dean Moss. Although the 
dfeM fs fesjMTsiblfe". for the; 
drasftic cuts "in'" student 
organizations, he concluded 
inquiringly, "Is anybody 
really suffering?" 

To back up his point, he 
cited WPBC, the campus radio 
station, and despite the cut, 
his reasons seemed justified 
since he has heard nothing 
from its speakers. Perhaps 
that's just the point, since 
WPBC's speakers are ex- 
tremely faulty and the cost to 
repair or replace them would 
probably exceed its $225 
budget. Is anybody really 
suffering, Dean? Apparently 
not, when PBJC has such a 
project as an executive dining 
room under construction. 

It cannnot be denied that 
Dean Moss holds a trying 
position and must report to his 
superiors, as do all employees. 
But with the facts as they are, 
the Acting Vice-President of 
Student Affairs doesn't seem 
to be acting in the best 
representative interests of the 
PBJC students. Maybe next

Senators SGActive 

Monday. December 3, 1979 BEACHCOMBER - 3 

Formalizing a Goodwill 
Charity Drive, rescheduling 
Homecoming, and organizing 
a student book exchange 
high lighted last Wednesday's 
Student Government Associa- 
tion (SGA) meeting agenda. 

The Charity Drive, slated 
for the weekend of Dec. 6, will 
give community members the 
opportunity to contribute 
unwanted items to the needy. 
Citizens may drop merchan- 
dise off from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in 
front of the SAC lounge. 

Other activities planned for 
the same weekend include a 
car smash on Dec. 6 at John 
Prince Park, and a concert on 
Dec. 7 featuring the Max 
Straw Show. 

Senators unitedly agreed to 
push back Homecoming from 
the middle of January until 
the week of Feb. 11. "This will 
allow students to settle into 
winter term classes before the 
festivities begin," explained 
Co-Homecoming Chairman 
Bill Watts. 

Though a theme has yet to 
be chosen, a tentative 
schedule for the weeks 
activities has been drawn up. 
A Gong Show, pie eating 
contest, bonfire, tricycle race, 
bed race, pep rally, parade, 
alumni baseball game, donkey 
basketball game and tennis 
tournament are some of the 

projected events throughout 
the week. 

Arrangements were also 
made at the meeting for a book 
exchange to take place in 
January. Students will be 
permitted to sell their 
textbooks and receive half of 
the original cost for them. 
Exact dates and times have 
not been established. 

Quick attention was given 
when Dean Robert Moss made 
a special appearance and 
addressed the senators, gear- 
ing his remarks to the Nov. 21 
Board of Trustees (BOT) 

Questioning a simmering 
weeklong view of dissatisfact- 
ion among the SGA, Moss 
stated, "We need to try to do 
something to get rid of the 
attitude that this administra- 
tion is trying to do something 
to students. We're really on 
the same team and working for 
the same goal." 

SGA members were discon- 
tent with decisions made at 
the Nov. 21 BOT meeting 
concerning the current at- 
tendance regulations. 

Meeting to discuss the 
present ten percent policy, the 
SGA had planned to pass a 
resolution establishing a study 
group to determine the 
validity of the recent attend- 
ance revision. 

Dr. Edward Eissey, PBJC 
president, motioned at the 
outset of the meeting to form 
the study committee, upstag- 
ing pleas by SGA President 
Polly Young and Jerald Self, 
president of the north campus 
chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, to 
establish the same group. 

As BOT member Susann 
Anstead put it, the student 
delegations were "beat to the 

The present discontent 
stems from the fact that the 
SGA had taken a moderate 
stance, even informing Eissey 
of their position before the 
meeting. Afterwards, several 
individuals revealed that they 
felt the move was "dirty 

However, the study group 
has been established. 

Consisting of four faculty 
members and two students, 
the group is comprised of Dr, 
Paul Dasher, Charles Graham, 
Mr. Edwin Pugh, Mrs, Hisetta 
Dyson, and SGA senators 
Winston Walker and Joe 

Eissey stated that students 
with extenuating circumstan- 
ces concerning attendance 
would be handled and added 
that his open door policy 
would include any student in 
this predicament.

No free parking 

"Nobody gets a free lunch!" declared Dr. Edward Eissey 
referring to the mandatory parking fees required of students that 
attend classes at the Palm Beach Junior College central campus. 
During this fall term, approximately $23,500.00 has been 
collected, according to Mrs. Ruth Broft and Mrs. Dorothea Kahle, 
who work as clerks in the campus bookstore where the fees are 
actually paid. 

Dr, Eissey explained that the money collected as parking fees is 
used for scholarships and campus improvements. 

According to Dr. G. Tony Tate, Vice President of Business 
Affairs, last year $16,856, was spent to resurface a portion of the 
campus parking area. Recent spending of money collected as 
parking fees has amounted to $6406.00 for resurfacing of parking 
areas and an additional $5658.00 for signs and striping for the 
parking lots. 

Mr. Hamid Facquire of the financial aid office reports that only 
about $880.00 has been used for some music scholarships. This 
money came from the collected parking fees, but there is still no 
speculation about the rest of the money that was supposed to be 
used for scholarships too. Ten per cent of the money collected, 
approximately £2350.00. The amount that should be used as 

"It takes time to determine the students financial needs," said 
Mr. Facquire. 

"Federal regulations must be adhered to, and the process of 
sorting out the students that really need the money requires a lot 
of time," he added.

Records now surfing 
Within the New Wave 


Jackson the man 

Joe Jackson came blasting 
out of the New Wave and 
Britain earlier this year with 
his debut album "Look 
Sharp." The LP was one of 
this year's best, combining 
lead bass, rhythm guitar, fine 
drumming and witty lyrics and 
vocals - in short, a welcome 
shot of originality for New 
Wave and popular music. 

Jackson's second release, 
"I'm the Man," uses the same 
formula, and it works to a 
certain extent. But the new LP- 
lacks intensity, and seems a 
bit too hurried. 

Some of the mellow tunes 
just don't click, namely "The 
Band Wore Blue Shirts" and 
"Amateur Hour." Others, 
such as "Geraldine and John" 
and "It's Different For Girls" 
are, like their titles, more 
interesting. Jacksons mellow 
numbers work best when they 
deal with controversial sub- 

The only other song which 
falls short is the Nick Lowe-ish 
"Kinda Kute." After there, 
"I'm the Man" looks pretty 

"On Your Radio" distantly 
describes Jackson's struggle 
and success in the music 
business, and the title cut is a 
witty rocker, on which Joe 
mockly tells us he's the man 
because he gave us the 
hula-hoop, the yo-yo and 

"Don't Wanna Be Like 
That" and "Get That Girl", 
are both good, up-tempo"* 
rockers, and "Friday" crashes 
the album to a close much like 
"Got The Time" did on the 
first LP. 

Jackson's band is again 
impressive. Guitarist Gary 
Sandford has increased his 
involvement slightly, and 
bassist Graham Maby and 
drummer Dave Houghton (an 
Elton John Lookalike) are the 
engine which runs this band-a 
great rhythm section. 
Overall, "I'm the Man" is a 
■ good alburn, it just had the 
misfortune of following "Look 
Sharp," a great one. Jackson 
would have benefited from 
releasing his second album 
first, and vice-versa, but many 
groups fit into that category 
(Boston comes to mind). 

Something not often 
* Sought of is that an artist has 
Ujs entire lifes worth of 

experiences from which to 
draw material for a debute 
album - and only the 
experiences which follow 
(usually a year or so) for 
writing their second album. 
This is a factor seldom 
considered in the demanding 
music industry. 

Joe Jackson will survive 
■beeausevhe 4s; an ^original. 
Many Elvis., Costello compar- 
isons.are.madp, but all should 
be quickly dismissed. Jackson 
doesn't need to copy the king 
or wear Buddy. Holly glasses to 
achieve success. He's the 
man. .

The disco craze is on the wane. That, at least, 
is what record company executives and radio 
station managers are saying. The reasons are 
numerous and quite difficult to pinpoint. 

The most eminent though is that people are 
just simply looking for something new to listen 
and dance to. "America still wants to dance, but 
not just to disco, We're broadeningthe scope of 
our dance music," is, what Ray F. Caviano, 
president of Warner RFC Records recently told 
The Wall Street Journal. "Our listeners got 
tired of the boom chick-a-boom all the time," 
said Michael Wagner, the program director of 
KI1S-FM a station in Los Angeles who also told 
the Journal that "Listeners wanted a break in 
the tempo and the monotony of the music, ' ' 

Record companies are now attempting to cash 
in on what appears to be the next direction that 
popular music will take. That direction being a 
form of music that has been labelled as "New 
Wave." But will "New Wave" indeed be the 
next musical "craze"? Locally, Gyn Cameron, a 
staff writer with the Boca Raton based New 
Wave magazine "Mouth of the Rat" says, "I 
don't think New Wave will takeover if groups 
like The Knack, Blondie and The Records 
become exceedingly popular." On top of this, 
Dick Crockett, an account executive with 
FM-J98 in West Palm Beach adds, "It depends 
on what you term as being New Wave. If you 
listen to the new song by Rick James, 
particularly the horn arrangements, you'll hear 
something new. And what about this new song 
out by Isaac Hayes, it sounds as though he's 
trying new things also. It appears that jazz is 
fusing with soul which could create something 
new and exciting for the 1980' s." --:.'• 

All this brings us to two more questions, 
which artists exactly are New Wave -and will 
New Wave in effect "replace disco"? While the 
now widely accepted belief that New Wave is a 
spinoff of Punk and that bands such "as 'The 
Knack, The Cars, Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe 
are New Wave, there is still disagreement as far 

as this is concerned. As Cameron puts it, "I 
don't consider The Knack, Nick Lowe and Elvis 
Costello as being New Wave. If anything they're 
fringe artists. While I feel that Nick Lowe 
produced what I feel to be the first punk LP, 
"The Damned." I certainly wouldn't label him 
as being New Wave now. " 

As, far , as New Wave being disco's 
replacement is concerned it's difficult to 
determine that now, . 

A recent article in The Miami Herald pointed , 
out that the Cichlids, a New Wave band, had 
gained a considerable amount of acceptance 
among South Florida audiences and also that 
several nationally and internationally known 
New Wave acts were due to make their 
appearance at auditoriums and stadiums 
throughout the South Florida region. Here again 
though Gyn Cameron is somewhat skeptical: 
' 'Yes, New Wave has taken over, but not in the 
purist sense.'To me "New Wave" is the music 
of a new revolution, a dissatisfaction with the 
status quo, a revulsion of what society has to 
offer. It's very fashionable right now to wear 
thin ties, thin lapels and buttons of New Wave 
groups that kids think are New Wave. Half the 
time they don't even know the music of the 
group that's on these buttons they're wearing." 

Discouraging news has been generating 
recently from the record making industry that 
they have suddenly found themselves faced with 
a crisis. As record prices increase album saies 
decline. Added to record makers woes is the 
unavailability of fuel. This has caused many 
groups to cutback on concert tours. And to make 
matters worse, there of course is that uncertainty 
about music's next course. Could it be that there 
has now been a vacuum created by this 
uncertainty leaving popular music open for a 
change if not a complete turnaround. If this is so 
we can only wait and see if the 1980's will 
present us with something new and promising 
or a disturbed picture of musical creativeness 
and artistry.

i t Steve Martin has released a

pm the contents, not only 
in't comedy pretty, it's not 
twiny either.

^peared on the last album 
fid the bit that opened 
Steve... Martin... how can

iin be heard on "Lets get 
Small." Martin also resorts to 
kying "excuuumiuuuuse 
leeeeee! (in French). This 
'ademark can now be found 
d all three of his albums. 

But this recording is not 
only redundant to its prede- 
cessors, it is also a repeat 
performance of several tele- 
vision skits. ("Farrah-Fawcett 
Majors is really rude. She 
hasn't even called me once. 
And after all the hours I spend 
holding up her poster with one 
hand!) On the now extinct 
"Cher" show, he did his"how 
tomeetgirls"routine. ' '. 
. "Comedy is'' 'Not' Pretty" 
runs the gamut from the 
moronic to the grotesque. At 
one point he stumbles through 
a story in which he bought a 
stereo. He gives an overabun- 
dance of boring details on how 
he went from stereo to quad 
and finally to google phonics, 
an infinite number of 
speakers. He also tells of 
meeting Jackie Onasis in a 
laundromat, and inviting her 
out to lunch only to find out 
that she is a pig. After stating 
this he snorts to further 
punctuate it. Now for the gross 
part. Martin announces to his 
audience that he enjoys eating 
animal lips and rat feces. 

Wait, there's more. 

He also tells his audience 
that he first learned about sex 
by watching neighborhood 
dogs. In the title routine, one 
of Martin's friends asks him if 
he respects her as a woman. 
His reply: "Of course I do, 
you're the best hog I ever 
had." Very Unfunny. 

However, ■ there ' are a few 
bright spots oh the album even 
though they are few and far 
between. Martin does some 
wonderful reading from his 
book, "Cruel Shoes. "There is 
also a piece called the Drop 
Thumb Medley which is 
played on the banjo. Perhaps 
Martin should consider be- 
coming a musician. It would 
be time well spent. 

To sum it up, this album is 
tedious. Martin appears t»be 
trving to rest on past laurels. If 
you already have one of his 
"previous albums you need not 
buy this one. 

However, if you still want a 
copy, I know where you can 
get one, cheap!

Monday, December 3, 1979 BEACHCOMBER - 7 

Joe Mastro 

At 4705 Broadway in West 
Palm Beach, long live The Nu 
Pizza King. 

Under the ambitious wing of 
freshman Joe Mastro, 24, the 
establishment of the same title 
offers one flavorful Italian pie 
with a pinch of Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

"Now that I'm going to 
school, it's the first time I'm 
getting the experience ot a 
business with the academics of 
college and incorporating 
them together," said the 
Hotel and Restaurant Man- 
agement major. "It's the best 
move I made in my life. " 

Mastro, a stout, enthusias- 
tic young man, has been the 
sole proprietor of the parlor 
since October. Prior to his new 
ownership, he gained consid- 
erable experience working at 
his father's pizza shop in 

"Working with my Dad was 
like going to Harvard for 
years," he stated proudly, 

although the need to learn the 
business affairs for himself 
brought him to PBJC. 

"I'm getting things on 
paper and in books," he 
followed, "I know how to wash 
dishes and be a short order 
cook, but I came to school and 
learned about proper storage 
and ideas on purchasing." 

Crediting his achievement 
with the help of Miss Linda 
.Schuhi and Mr. Julio Rive of 
the Food Service Dept., 
Mastro plans to rennovate the 
restaurant's interior and exter- 
ior, including the floor, 
counters, and advertising 

Despite the obstacles of a 
fledging business, he refuses 
to have his hand-made pizzas 
"go commercial" after learn- 
ing the value of quality and 
labor. Moreover Joe Mastro is 
independent and optimistic. 

"I'm not getting rich, but it 
is good to be working." 

Media courses successful 

Television and newspaper 
courses are now being 
recognized as a valuable 
commodity. This past semes- 
ter, 127 students took 
audio/visual courses, and the 
number is anticipated to go 
higher next semester. 

"Enrollment is usually 
higher in wintetethafr irii allt' V* 
says Elizabeth * T. ? Wbolfe ?, ; 
Continuing Education coord- 
inator. "We had 64 enrolle'rs 
last winter for only two 

Another reason for antici- 
pation is a new newspaper 
course- "Energy and the Way 
We Live," which goes quite 
well with the present energy 
situation. The class starts Jan. 

The same TV courses will be 

offered next semester, "Child 
Growth and Development," 
' 'Survey of Physical Science, ' ' 
"Introduction to Business", 
and "General Psychology." 
An expanded lineup of TV 
courses is expected next fall. 

' "TV courses help encourage 
students toward PBJC", says 
Mrs. Woolfe. ' 'The main value 
of audio/ visual learning is that

ically remote who want to start

One has to undergo quite a 
search to find a good 
hamburger restaurant. Many 
have always been mediocre, 
others used to be good but 
have plummetted. However, 
one that will probably always 
carry a standard of quality is 
Dwayne "Doc" Turner's 
Hamburger Haven. 

Dwayne, a PBJC student, 
has co-owned the restaurant 
with his grandmother for the 
past two years. 

Hamburger Haven is a 
rarity among eating establish- 
ments — it is run completely 
by the Turner family. 
Everyone involved in the 
management and operation is

been that way since the late

started the business. It was

Among things that need to 
be rectified are the parking 
facilities, the seating and the 
stadium sound system. There 
is no parking on the stadium 
grounds except for people with 
-season passes^ Patrons have to 
park on neighborhood lawns 
paying three to five dollars. 

There are no seats in the 
stadium, only bleacher type 
seating, which is very 
uncomfortable and not worth 
the ten dollars per ticket. The 
public address system at the 
Orange Bowl cannot be heard 

at all. Fans rarely hear 
anything said by the public 
address announcer. 

These problems at least 
have to be resolved if Miami 
will not build a new stadium. 
They are the main problems 
facing the Dolphin fans, but 
not the only one. The stadium 
is situated in a bad area of 
Miami; the ticket booths are 
very unorganized, (no signs of 
whether or not tickets are 
being sold for later games at 
that specific booth) the indoor 
facilities (food and bathrooms) 

are dirty and have long lines. 

A sports organization needs 
three things: good front 
office, a strong team, and a 

first class stadium. The 
Dolphins have only two thirds, 
and they desperately need to 
fill that void.

This year's intramural 
season is now winding down. 
Despite not having as much 
participation as expected, the 
Intramural board has high 
expectations for next term. 

Plans for next term include 
bowling, tennis, racquetball, 
basketball and many others. 
The sailing club, always one of 
the more popular activities, 
should also be returning. 

Karate class, taught by 
Steve Perez, should also be 
back next term. There is also a 
possibility that more disco 
nights will be sponsored 
again. These were very 
popular last year. 

Intramurals is an integral 
part of any educational

student the chance to actively 
participate in the sport or 
sports of his own choice. A

Pacers now ranked third in state 

Rodney Cook 
Sports Editor 
The PBJC Pacers now rank number three in the 
state junior college poll, behind Brevard and Daytona 
Beach. They deserve this ranking because they have 
played all their games against ranked opponents and 
have lost but once. .-•-.'.■•- ."''■•■ 

The Pacers four game winning streak came to 
a halt Tuesday night as the defending state champion 
Brevard Titans triumphed 81-70. The Pacers record 
now stands at 4-1, while Brevard remains undefeated. 

Earlier, the Pacers upset Manatee 83-82, thanks to 
two last second free throws by Howard Hoskin. Then, 
on Thanksgiving weekend, the Pacers captured a 
holiday tournament by beating host Miami Dade 
North "79-74, and Miami Dade New World Center 

For The Pacers, who were unranked before the 
season started, the number three ranking came as a 
pleasant surprise. But the attitude of the team is that 
five games does not "a season make. 

They enjoy the lofty position, but they're going to 
take each game one at a time. What they really want is 
the state championship more than the ranking itself. 
So far their play has been excellent. 

They play more like a team than last year. They are 
together both emotionally and physically. Their past 
few games have brought that out. 

Against Manatee, the Pacers opened with a full 
court press, taking the Lancers by surprise. The press 
soon began to lose its effectiveness and Manatee 
began to pull back. The Lancers scored the last eight 
points of the half and trailed 41-39 at intermission. 

In the first ten minutes of the second half, the lead 
seesawed back and forth between the two teams. 
Many of Manatee's baskets were coming from 
repeated off ensjye rebounds ," 

The Pacers opened up a four point lead with just 
over two minutes to play. At this point, Pacer Coach 

Joe Ceravolo called time out and positioned his team 
into a four corner offense to run out the clock. 

They didn't run it very well and Manatee scored two 
quick baskets to tie the game. The Pacers then hit 
three free throws before a last second Manatee basket 
provided, the final margin. High scorers for the 
Pacers were Luis Fuentes with 16 points and Howard 
Hoskin who added 15. 

Later that" week, the Pacers traveled to Miami Dade 
North with high hopes, even though they were 
scheduled to play a state-ranked team in the first 
game. The Facers came trom behind several times to 
finally capture the contest 79-74. 

This meant that the Pacers had to tangle with tenth 
ranked Miami Dade New World Center in the final. 

Coach Joe Ceravolo 

The Pacers then proceeded to play their best garj 
the year, storming out to a 16 point halftone leads 
Pacers coasted in from there, winning 99-89. 

Two Pacers were named to the all-tournamcntt 
for their outstanding performances. They aid 
Washington, who played an exceptional second g 
and Luis Fuentes, who played consist 
throughout. . 

Against second ranked Brevard, the' Pacers if 
jumped off to an early lead, thanks to a full count 
court press. But Brevard quickly pulled back, thr 
largely to Pacer mistakes and some mains 
officiating. Howard Hoskin had to leave the £ 
because he received an elbow in the eye, yd o: 
was called. Brevard finished the first half by sec 
the last six points and led 41-35. 

In the second half, the Titans began to pull f 
They were consistently able to work their way (tr, 
the Pacer defenders for easy baskets. Afta 
minutes, the Titans led 50-39. 

The Pacers then began to slowly come back, t ! ' 
mainly to the hot shooting of Cameron Traill 
Pacers pulled to within four points with five nr 
remaining, but because of mistakes could p„ r 
closer. Brevard scored eight straight points t 
away the game. Trail was the Pacers high scowl 
15 points. 

Tonight, the Pacers travel up to Cocoa for a rcf 
with Brevard. Ceravolo believes that "with I 
more play-making and better defense, we $ 
reverse the outcome. "

Doc Eissey 

By Robin Sarra * 

'Twas the night before Christmas when all thru the school 
Not a creature was stirring not even a fool . 
The petitions were hung by the office with care 
In hopes that Doc Eissey soon would be there. 
The students were nestled all snug in their beds, 
While visions of 15% danced in their heads. 
And Don at his easel and I at my desk 
Had j u st settled the paper for a long win ter's rest. 
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter 
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter. 
Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the 
Shutter and threw up the sash. 
The moon on the breast of the dew-fallen grass 
Gave a lustre of midday to objects surpassed. 
When what to my wondering eyes should arise 
But a miniature Buick and sixteen beady eyes, 
With a little old driver, short, cute and messy 
I knew in a moment it must be Doc Eissey ! 
More rapid than Pacers his coursers they came 
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name. 
"Now, Kevin, now B.J. now, Tony and Bill, 
On, Robin, on Celia, on Mike and Michele." 
To the top of the office, go down the hall, 
Now dash away, run away, shut up y 'all . 
So up to the school top the Pacers they flew 
With a sleigh full of Beachcombers and Doc Eissey, too. 
And then with a twinkling, I heard on the roof 
The prancing and pawing of each little tooth. 
As I drew in my head, and was turning around 
Down the stairs Doc Eissey came with a bound 
He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, 
He laughed when he noticed the ashes and soot 
A bundle of papers he had flung on his back, 
And he looked like a student opening his pack. 
His eyes, how they twinkled! his dimples had flair, 
His cheeks were like roses , his nose like a pear. 
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow 
And the beard on his chin was as bald as a mole. 
He had a bright vest over a little round belly, 
That shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly. 
He was small and short — a right jolly old elf; 
And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself. 
A wink in his eye, and a shake of his head 
Soon gave me to know the petition was DEAD! ! ! 
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, 
Andannulledall the petitions and turned with a jerk. 
And laying a finger aside of his nose, 
He jumped in his Buick to his team gave a whistle, 
And away they all drove like the down of a thistle. 
But 1 heard him exclaim, ere they drove out of sight, 
"Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good-night."

Dear Editor, 

The Beachcomber editorial, "Eissey Not 
Impressed With Petition," was taken 
completely out of context. I was quoted as 
correctly as far as it went, however, the 
sentence or quote was not carried to its 

The complete thought was, I believe, that the 
individual student is very important. Any 
individual student who exhibits concern, desires 
to express their opinion regarding a policy 
change, has a legitimate complaint, etc., is 
entitled to be heard without the necessity of a 
petition.' There was not a single intent to ignore 
students' requests in my statement. It was to 


emphasize the importance of the individual and 
to minimize the necessity of having to have a 

To also state that I must not hide my 
awareness of the IS percent attendance request, 
is also out of order. If that were true, then why 
have I appointed a committee comprised of 
students, faculty, administrators, and the Board 
of Trustees to study the effects of the present 
policy? This assignment was recommended and 
accepted by the Board of Trustees many days 
prior to the comment in the editorial.

Bravo Beachcomber! 

In the tradition of radio-tel- 
evision commentator, Paul 
Harvey, it is only appropriate 
the final Fall term issue of the 
Beachcomber gives "the rest 
of the story" in what it takes to 
publish the PBJC newspaper. 

Like the brave knight who 
has slain the dragon, the 
Beachcomber relishes the 
conquest of preordained 
unconquerable foes. Through 
budget reduction.high costs, 
long nights, and occassional 
short tempers, the personnel 
involved published copies both 
newsworthy and entertaining. 
Versatility marked the style 
for news. Writers such as Bill 
Meredith, John Eades, Robin 
Aurelius, Ross Sanders, and 
Tammy Prohaska made con- 
tributions to the accuracy of 
fact-finding reporting along 
the lines of professional 

Likewise, talent ran the 
gamut in the Beachcomber's 
Venture, where features 
warranted a section of their 
own. Works by Tony Rizzo, 
Contributing Editor Celia 
Vock, Barbara Pederson, 
Nancy Netzger, and newly 
arrived Angee Morris have 
been enjoyed by . many a 
reader with a care for flair. 
Moreover, Celia's knack at 
vivacity highlighted her skills 
inlaying out the newsprint. 

Skills also played an 
important part in the writings 
of Sports Editor Rodney Cook 
and Bill Meeks, whose reports 
kept abreast of Pacer 

Possibly the most noticeable 
aesthetic value to the 
Beachcomber were the num- 
erous graphics and pictures. 
Thanks to the abilities of Photo 
' EditoK-Bili Branca, photo- 
grapher-.Dee' > Dee MeMahon 
and artists Robin Sarra, Don 
Childs, and John Zack, stories 
were heightened by the 
display of emotion or the 
making of a point.

evident display of dedication 
to the campus paper than from 
Associate Editor Michele

Markham makes move 

Appointments of a new 
treasurer for the Executive 
Board, a new chairman for the 
game room committee, and 
plans for the upcoming book 
exchange transcribed at the 
Dec.;! 5 Student Government 
Association (SGA) meeting. 

A vacancy in the Executive 
Board was opened last week, 
when treasurer Steve Solieri 
submitted his resignation to 
SGA president Polly Young. 
The position has been 

assigned to Senator Les 
Markham for the remainder of 
the term. Markham will be 
excluded from voicing a vote 
in the senate, and instead, will 
vote as a member of the board. 

In other business, Senator 
Scott Munn was selected as 
the chairman for the game 
room committee, replacing 
Senator Lisa Lautiainer, who 
has been absent at recent 

The SGA will give students 

the opportunity to sell their 
fall term textbooks for half 
their initial cost. Books are 
being accepted now through 
Jan. 10 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at 
the SGA office located inside 
the SAC lounge. 

The anticipation of a good 
student textbook turnout is 
expected because of the 
success of the associations 
Goodwill Charity Drive this 
past weekend. 


Particularly so in lieu of the 
fact that the Max Straw Band 
only played three 45- minute 
sets to the tune of 300 
dollars, Fri., Dec. 7. 

Knowledgeable sources 
confide that this rate of pay 
was very generous in relation 
to prices and going rates of 
musical acts in this area. 

Senator Les Markham, band 
committee chairman, 
explains, "We only had a 
limited amount of time and I 
personally felt that a band of 
this calibre was worth it. " 

Unfortunately, we spent a 
little more money than we 

Most should agree that the 
use of Markham's subjective 
quote stating that that Max 

Straw Band was "good" 
allows for subjective rebuttal 
of that statement. 

The guitar was very 
simplistic and extremely 
overbearing. Vocals and guitar 
were out of tune and drowned 
out the bass and drums.almost 

And the vocals-or should I 
say the screeching? 

The Max Straw Band is not 
a horrible band, but there are 
a great number of better 
bands who would have played 
the campus for free. And 
overbearing hard rock can get 
old fast. 

Next time, the SGA should 
invest their money in a jazz 
fusion or funk-rock band. The 
results, as well as the review, 
would be much better. 

Attendence policy still dominates talks with Ed 


In the third, event of its kind, 
"Wednesday with Ed" brought criticism 
and congratulations to the PBJC 
President, Dr. Edward M. Eissey. 

Despite the small student turnout and 
the executive's comment that "maybe 
everyone is satisfied," Dr. Eissey was 
once again put under fire concerning the 
issue of the attendance policy. 

"Grades and attendnance have been 
much better," claims; the president, 
according to recent conferences with 
faculty members. 

However, although the ten percent 
policy apparently has been showing 
advantages, a memo of clarification in 
attendance is being circulated through- 
out the campus. 

Eissey added, ' 'The idea of a stricter 
attendance policy has had a great effect 
on students, emotionally. Some 
statements that have been made are 

totally erroneous. For instance, an 
illness does not constitute an absence. " 

Moreover, a point was raised as to the 
teachers' positions in handling student 
absenteeism. Concedingly, the president 
admitted that there are "human frailities 
on our staff" and that some will be 
"insentive to the facts. " 

On a lighter note, congratulations 
were extended to the proud grandfather 
of a baby boy. Dr. Eissey 
exclaimed, "This is one of the most 
thrilling things in my life! ' ' 

Before ending, a reference to an 
editorial in the Beachcomber was made 
aout the decreased budgets of student 
activities. In response, Dr. Eissey 
assured that no less monies would be 
spent this year than last, and that other 
priorities and increasing costs have 
strained additional funding.

A child's Chanukah: a glowing message of love and foi 

By Betty Comden 

It was getting to be that time of the 
year again, with Chanukah and 
Christmas coming along, and I was 
nine \ears old and hemming my 
costume foi the school winter festival. 
M\ mother called to me down the long 
apartment hall to start preparing for 
our Chanukah visit to my grandpar- 
ent's home. 

They lived only six blocks away from 
us in Brooklyn, so I had very little 
packing to do I folded up my sewing, 
to be finished the next day, washed, 
and put on my party dress, which 
meant either the dark-green velvet or 
the brown velvet with the ecru lace 
collar and cuffs. Then I hastily gift 
wrapped the blotters I had so 
painstakingly made as Chanukah 
presents for each member of the 

The family group that gathered that 
early evening consisted of my 
grandparents, my aunt who lived in the 
fine house on Union Street, my other 
aunt and uncle and their two 
daughters, and my parents, my elder 
brother and me. That's a lot of blotters. 
"What are blotters?" I can hear you 
ask. In those days, we still wrote with 
pen holders and pen nibs and inkwells, 
and even our rare fountain pens left 
wet letters that had to be blotted dry. 
Because that year in school I was 
studying the Greeks and the Romans, 
my gifts were blotters decorated with 
Greek and Roman vases. I drew the 
vases on white paper, adorned them 
with geometric friezes, acanthus-leaf 
borders and dancing human figures, 
then cut them out and pasted them in 
judicious arrangements on varied 
lengths and shapes of gieen blotting 
paper. A perfect Chanukah gift. 

The year before, my class had 
studied the Egyptians; everyone in my 
family received blotters decorated with 
Egyptian vases. When I learned about 
the Middle Ages, there were blotters 
bearing illuminated letters that would 
nave put many an old monk to shame. 
My family placed high value on gifts we 
made ourselves, and we all had 
drawers filled with sketches, poems 
and clay ashtrays created by various 
members of the family over the years. 

M_\ grandfather generously shared 
with all of us what he had made of 
himself. He was a stunning man — a 
tall, volatile, bemustached patriarch 
who still bore one shoulder lower than 
the other from the weight of the heavy 
sack of non pots and tinwaie he had 
earned from door to door through 
several states when he first arrived in 
this country from Russia. He had done 
well, but never at the expense of 
others He was generous and 
encouraging to all who followed him to 
the United States. 

On the first night of Chanukah, we 
gatheied at his home for the lighting of 
the first candle. My grandmother was 

husband whom she had followed to 
the country in steerage with their two 
little daughers. She had long 
silver-white hair which I used to watch 
her brush and dress with Eau de 
Quinine and plait into a long braid 
before she went to sleep at night. By 
day she wore it coiled on top of her 
head. I remember her that night, 
wearing a soft, lavender dress with 
touches of white, protectingly cupping 
her hands over the candles as she lit 

The menorah has eight arms and a 
ninth to hold the candle that lights the 
others. By lighting the candle on the far 
right and adding another candle as 
each of the eight days goes by, we 
celebrate the miracle of the tiny bit of 
oil in the temple that burned for eight 
days and nights in front of the Holy Ark 
housing the Torah. The celebration of 
Chanukah commemorates the rededi- 
cation of the temple in Jeruselem in 
about 165 B.C. after a successful revolt 
led by Judah Maccabee against the 

I was impatient for the eighth night 
to come when all nine candles would 
burn brightly together. After the 
lighting, Grandpa said to each 
grandchild, with an unsuccessful 
attempt at looking solemn, "Pujz-e-le" 
(a term of endearment) "all I have for 
you is a little piece of paper." This 
always turned out to be a check — I 
new from previous years that it would 
be. But I always enjoyed the ritual. 
Sometimes for the girls there would 
also be something in a big box which he 
said was a fish. But it would turn out to 
be a doll. The only constants were 
Grandpas "piece of paper" and the 
glowing candles. 

After the evening meal and many 
kisses and embraces, we walked home. 
As we came up the stoop of our small 
apartment building, I could see the 
signs of Christmas in the windows of 
our neighbors. The Olivers had a 

beautiful Christmas tree with colored 
lights. Through the basement window I 
caught a glimpse of the star on top of 
the janitor's tree. I was eager to get 
inside our apartment so we could light 
our own menorah which stood on a lace 
mnner on the sideboard in the dining 
room. My mother lit the candle that 
does the lighting, and, with it, she lit 
the first candle. Again I wished for the 
eighth night. 

The next day I stayed home from 
school and finished hemming my 
costume for the school festival. I was to 
be a vestal virgin. Why was this small, 
dark-haired Jewish girl preparing to be 
a vestal virgin? Every subject we 
studied that year in school in some way 
related to ancient Greece and Rome. 
For example, that year in English we 
read simplified versions of The 
Odyssey and The Iliad. 

At my school, there was no 
Christmas or Chanukah pageant, no 
Nativity play, no portrayal of 'the 
Maccabees. Instead, we had a winter 
festival to celebrate the idea that all 
cultures, religions and nationalties 
down through the ages have had 
different ways of marking the 
awe-inspiring miracle of the change of 
the seasons. As part of the festival, 
there was always a huge evergreen tree 
and a candelabra. The main idea was 
for each class to dramatize how the 
culture it was stuyding celebrated the 
winter solstice. 

A few days after Chanukah, Grandpa 
and Grandma and the others in the 
family came to watch me as a Roman 
vestal virgin march solemnly with my 
sister virgins in white robes and veils 
held with silver circlets. Our main 
action was to drop a pinch of incense in 
the sacred fire. Meanwhile, the boys in 
the class, dressed as Roman centurions 
wearing gilt cardboard helmets and 
brandishing wooden swords, paraded 
by to Chopin polonaise Miss Cleary 
played on the piano. 

My family was used to it. Aft, 
years before, they had seen c

What does Christmas really mean to me? 

Christmas is the holiday for 
celebrating the birth of our 
Messiah, the Lord Jesus 
Christ. It's a shame that man 
has transgressed upon this 
holiday so much — especially 
with commercialism so that 
the whole concept of Christ- 
mas is lost to many people. 
Let's not let the traffic and 
people fighting over gifts get 
to us; sadly, that's what 
Christmas is to many people. 
Don Phillips 

Christmas is a time to relax 
and really do some serious 
thinking as to what life is all 

Christ, the Son of God was 
born on this day; it is a day of 
rejoicing and loving one

and harmony instead of hatred 
and discontent. 

Lucille England 

reveal himself to the world; I 
think of that perfect love which 
was about to be expressed 
through Jesus Christ. "Peace 
and goodwill toward men" is 
not just some flimsy phrase. 
To me, that particular phrase 
signifies that the love, peace, 
and grace of God was available 
for the whole world, and not 
just for one race of people.

life has changed. Christmas is 
no longer mere department 
stores and presents, but a 
celebration of the birth of a 
Messiah who is more personal 
with me than anyone else. 

Duke Waldron 

Christmas means the season 
of good will. The singing in 
churches gives out the feeling 
of joy to the world. 

The angels come close to the 
earth at this time and magnify 
the feeling of love, hope, joy 
and peace. 

Let us have peace like we 
never had before this 
Christmas. Let the brother- 
hood of man come to the front. 
We are the one to ring the bell 
to freedom, brotherhood, good 
will and let the whole world 
celebrate together. 

Johanna Girard 

Traditions, memories, mu- 
sic, beautiful wot ship services

adoration and praise — in 
celebration of the greatest 
birth that ever took place

man who became the Savior of 
the world. 

Alice Buell 

Christmas is more than just 
"Jingle Bells" and "Santa 
Clause is coming town", 
Christmas is perhaps the most 
special time of the yeai, 
ranking second only to Easter. 
For it was on Christmas that 
our Lord and Savior, the 
Messiah of Israel, was humbly 
born. I consider it a real 
privilege to be able to 
celebrate His birth with my 
family and friends, who also 
hold His birth deai to heait, 
because it was His birth and, 
later, His death and resurrect- 
ion, that would pave the way 
for all mankind to share in the 
New Birth of the Spirit that 
enables us to have a share in 
God's Kingdom. 

James Elliot 

It's a time to celebrate the 
birth of Christ; a time of year 
to remember our Lord and 
share expressions of love 
among our family. 

Edward M. Eissey 

And, lo, the angel of the 
Lord came upon them, and the 
glory of the Lord shone round 
about them and ihey were 
afraid. And the angel said 
unto them, "Fear not... For 
behold, I bring you good 
tidings of great joy, which 
shall be to all people. For unto 
you is born this day in the city 
of David a Savior, which is 
Christ the Lord. And this shall 
be a sign unto you; Ye shall 
find the babe wrapped in 
swaddling clothes, lying in a 
Mangei" And suddenly there 
was with the angel a multitude 
of heavenly host praising God, 
and saying, Glory to God in 
the highest, and on earth 
peace, good will toward men. 
Luke 2:9-14. 

That night is what Christmas 
means to me.

Student Announcement 

In response to student opinion and needs, Edward M. Eissey, President of PBJC has issued a memo 
to all head -administrators [ South, North, Central and Glades campuses] regarding current 
attendance regulations that state as follows: 

All students who have questions regarding the attendance policy and its implementation should 
follow the procedures outlined below: 

(1) He or she should discuss the matter thoroughly with the faculty member involved. 

(2) If the resolution to their problem is not taken care of with the faculty member, they should 
then go to the department chairman or head campus administrator to seek relief and make their 
request known. 

(3) If the second step is not satisfactory to the student, they are to bring their concerns to the 
/J?fc e f of Student Affairs or head campus administrator for disposition. 

(4) If that step (No. 3) is not acceptable, the Acting Vice-President of Student Affairs or head 
campus administrator, is to make an appointment with the president for the student and faculty 
member to present the situation and receive a final decision. 

This will be the procedure that we will follow until such time that we have an opportunity to 
conclude our research. 

New phone system complete 

After months of wiring and 
rewiring, the installation of 
the new Dimension Telephone 
System has been completed. 



The latest addition to the 
hierarchy of the cafeteria is 
new director of Food Services, 
Mr. David Thomas. 

A native of Tennessee, 
Thomas joined the staff three 
weeks ago. He is a graduate 
from the University of 
Tennessee, where he obtained 
a BS in Music Appreciation, a 
BA in Music Performance, and 
an AS in journalism, Sociology 
and Psychology. 

Thomas' duties will include 
the planning of the menu, and 
cafeteria production. "After 
the Christmas holidays, we 
will begin a new program," 
commented Thomas. "Weekly 
specials of all you can eat and 
various ethnic dishes will be 
featured. It's something new 
and will be a change of pace," 
he continued. 

Other new additions to the 
cafeteria menu will include 
pizza, milkshakes, and a 
variety of breakfast foods. A 
toaster oven as well as new 
coffee urns will be provided. 

Plans for a snack bar which 
will carry a full sandwich line, 
snacks, pastries, and bever- 
ages is presently in the 
making. Thomas was not 
certain as to the location of the 
snack bar, but does know that 
it will have outside exposure. 

"This is the most modern 
system available. It's much, 
much faster and more 
efficient. We will be able to 
expand with this system. We 
were at the point of over 
capacity with the previous 
operation," explained Mrs. 
Mary Tingler, Communica- 
tions Counseler. 

"Another advantage to this 
system is that it provides 
direct lines to other campuses. 
There will not be a long 
distance phone charge," she 

As in the past, a nine must 
be dialed in order to obtain an 

outside line. All in-coming 
calls can be dialed directly 
since each of the respective 
departments has been assign- 
ed a phone number. These 
new numbers are listed in the 
current phone book and will 
also appear in the soon-to-be 
released campus directory. 

Individuals requesting gen- 
eral campus information may 
call the operator at 439-8000. 
The day registrar may be 
contacted at 439-8100, and the 
night registrar at 439-8110. 
The office of the campus 
president may be reached 
when dialing 439-8080.

Many years ago on 
Christmas Eve in Cinncinnati, 
Ohio, a young boy and his 
father were doing some 
last-minute Christmas shop- 
ping. As the man and his son 
rushed through the streets 
crowded with shoppers, the 
youngster suddenly recoiled at 
the touch of a ragged, old 
beggar asking for money. 

Observing the encounter, 
the boy's father gently 
reminded him that it was 
Christmas Eve, and that he 
should not be angry with the 
man because he was asking for 
a little gift. The 12-year-old 
lad eyed the panhandler 
carefully, but his heart 
remained unsoftened. 

"Dad, he's nothing but a 
dirty bum," the youngster 
complained to his father. 

His father replied, "Maybe 
he is a bum — but he is still a 
human being." Then his 
father took a large bill from his 
pocket and gave it to the 
youngster to give to the 

"Son, tell him that you are 
giving it in the spirit of 

The youngster reluctantly 
did as his father told him and 
was amazed at the sudden 
transformation of the dere- 
lict's face. A glowing smile 
came upon it and his dull eyes 
were suddenly shining. The 
beggar then bowed the most 
courtly bow the boy had ever 
seen and said, "In the spirit of 
Christmas, thank you. May 
God bless you." 

That brief encounter that 
Christmas Eve made a lasting 
impression^ on the lad. He 
learned that human dignity, 
though sometimes hidden, is 
in every living soul. 

To complete my story, let 
me tell you that I was that 
young man. On that long past 
Christmas Eve, I learned a 
wonderful lesson in love, 
charity and human dignity. It 
has stayed with me throughout 
my life and has helped to build 
the American character in me.

"In the fulness of time, God sent forth 
His Son."* God does not sit before a 
great computer in Heaven punching keys 
to make things happen. He knew from 
the beginning what results would come 
from the cause-effect relationships in 
man's history. 

From the first sin by Eve and Adam in 
the Garden of Eden, God promised a 
Deliverer-Messiah. Throughout History, 
God continued His covenant-promises 
for man's redemption. For example, 
Isaiah said, ' 'For unto us a child is born, 
unto us a .son is given: and the 
government shall be upon his shoulder: 
arid his name shall be called Wonderful, 
Counselor . The mighty God, The 
Everlasting Father, The Prince of 

Mental and spiritual preparation came 
through synagogues^that started during 
the Persian rule. Here in the 
synagogues, Jews studied the Script- 
ures, praved and worshipped. The 
Temple was reserved primarily for 
sacrifical ceremonies. From the Greek 
Era, Jews had their Scriptures (the Old 
Testament) translated into the common 

languages ot the day — Greek for all to 
read everywhere. 

A Greco-Roman culture, law system, 
taxes and government effected Herod's 
position and the Bethlehem registry for 
Mary and Joseph. Micah foretold this 
event also. "But thou, Bethlehem 
Ephratah, though thou be little among 
the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee 
shall he come forth unto me to be ruler in 
Israel; whose goings forth have been of 
old, from everlasting. ' ' 

Messenger-angels from Heaven 
pronounced, "Amen" to God's plan 
accomplished when Jesus was born in 
Bethlehem. Luke, a medical doctor- 
scholar researched man's records and 
inscribed the angel's words. "Fear not; 
for, behold I bring you good tidings of 
great joy, which shall be to all people. 
For unto you is born this day in the city 
of David a Saviour, which is Christ the 
Lord." And then a multitude of angels 
replied, "Glory to God in the highest, 
and on earth peace, good well toward

Holidays "bowl" over T.V. viewers 

By Rodney Cook 
Sports Editor 

When you think about the 
"holiday Spirit," what comes 
to mind? Christmas cards? 
Opening presents? Singing 
carols? How about New Years 
Eve parties 9 

Quite possibly these are the 
things that you look forward 
to. But to millions of men and 
women around the country, 
the holiday season means that 
the bowl games are coming. 

From December 19 until the 
end of New Year's Day, college 
football will be racing almost 
nonstop across our television 
screens . The Liberty Bowl, The 

Peach Bowl, The Cotton Bowl, 
The Rose Bowl, The Orange 
Bowl and so on. The networks 
even throw in a few all-star 
games, so as not to let us 
wander away. 

With all these games going 
on, there is no time for 
anythng else except sleeping 
and eating. Because of this, 
it's impossible to carry on 
some of the more normal 
holiday activities such as 
visiting relatives and friends. 
Family relations can often 
become strained because of 

Another problem during 
bowl season is keeping the 

weight down. Watching all 
these football games leaves 
very little time for exercise 
and with all the food that is 
consumed during the holiday 
season, it usually takes the 
rest of the year to get the 
weight backdown to normal in 
time for next year's bowl 

By far, the worst problem 
watching all these games is 
the football hangover. Two 
weeks of watching game after 
game after game can leave you 
with a headache that can't be 
matched by alcohol. 

After the holidays, when the 

bowl watcher returns to work 
or school, a curious change 
has come over him. His eyes 
are as big as a picture screen 
and he still sees football 
players dancing before his 
dialated pupils. 

Whatever you do, don't 
drop anything around a person 
with a football hangover. After 
two weeks of fumbles, your 
football maniac will dive after 
anything that leaves a person's 

I recall a friend of mine who 
came back to school after the 
bowl season. He looked really 
hung over and I remarked that 

he must have really tied one 
on. He said "Sorry, but I don't 
drink, " I told him that he must 
be joking, he was obviously 
suffering from too many trips 
to the punch bowl. 

His response was "The 
Punch Bowl? I must have 
missed that one, but I caught 
all the others. The Sugar 
Bowl, The v Gator Bowl, The 
Tangerine Bowl and all the 
rest. Boy am I sick! " 

But these poeple would get 
sicker if they had no games to 
look forward to every year. As 
a bowl devotee would say, "It 
wouldn't be Christmas without 
bowl games!"

Candidate Kay visits PBJC 

BY Bill Meredith 

Democratic Presidential 
candidate Richard B Kay 
v'isited PBJC Jan. 10 Mr. 
Kay spoke in the Sac Lounge 
and offeied some intriguing 
opimons on energy, foreign 
policy, political campaigns, 
and other subjects. 

Mr. Kay hails from Ohio, 
and practices law in 
Cleveland. He has also been 
admitted to practice in 
Florida, and is a member of 
the Council on World Affairs, 
the Reserve Officers Associa- 
tion, and the Palm Beach 
County Bar Association. 

* 'I know 1 have no chance for 
election," he admitted, "but I 
want to help make it possible 
for evciyone to have a chance 
to obtain high office." 

Mr. Kay gave opinions and 
suggestions on several issues. 
On the issue of energy, Kay 
was quoted as saying, "We 
need long-range energy 
commissions, for Americans 
have been lied to about oil. 
There are about thirty large oil 
companies who control over- 
seas production, and 11,000 
independent producers who sit 
on 59 percent of our oil 

Gearing his remarks on the 

topic of the military. Kav 
stated, "Give more authority 
to the military below cabinet 
rank, and increase appropia- 
tions in Research and 
Development for space 
technology, for our survival 
will depend upon being first in 
this area." 

Asked about his feelings on 
the Iran situation, Kay said, "I 
am tired of Khomeini 
manipulating American new 
media. If Carter had taken 
firm action, Afghanistan 
never would have happened." 

Regarding Agriculture. Kay 
commented, '"Americas' 
greatest natural tecourse is its 
abundant food supply. We 
must be willing to use it as a 
lever in dealing with other 

Kay had some interesting 
views concerning Foreign 
Policy. "We have no foreign 
policy at the present time. 
Andrew Young must be 
removed as Ambassador to the 
U.N. and replaced with one 
who believes in America and 
its institutions. We can not 
export democracy. " ' 

Kay gave his opinions on 
the subjects of welfare and 
prison reform. 

"I encourage people toward 
self-help and would like them 

to keep at some type of work. 
It is too easy to get on welfare 
and too hard to get off. ' ' 

"I advocate a new approach 
to prison reform - setting up 
rehabilitation colonies in 
either Micronesia, Polynesian 
or the Aleutian Islands for 
those criminals who show 
violent tendencies. ' ' 

Continuing his speech, Kay 
offeied his attitudes on the 
political campagin procedures. 
"I want to limit the total 
• amount any candidate can 
spend on a campaign. Political 
creatures are more concerned 
with personal survival than the 
country's survival . ' ' 

"No great nation can ignore 
its poor-but it will not remain 
great if it constantly gives in to 
the want-mores," Kay added. 

"We have a great political 
system, but it is temporal il> 
taken over by 'disciples ot the 
devil' We must concentrate 
on what is permanent instead 
of what is changeable, or oui 
'complacent America' will 
lesult in a bloodbath like we 
have never seen befoie,"he 

If nothing else, Richard Kay 
is proof that a Presidential 
candidate not in serious 
contention can express and 
prove himself worthy of his

Lake Worth, Florida 

Eissey folks irTCircles" 

Dr. Eissey asks for millage support. 


In a never ending venture to 
gain votes for the Match 1 1 tax 
referendum, Dr. Edward M. 
Eissey, campus president 
addiessed members of Circle 
Klast Wednesday night. 

Since 1968, PBJC has not 
received one cent in lotal 
taxes. Now, for the first time, 
the college is asking for the 
public's help 

bxpldining that PBJC is the 
oldest public commuter 
college in the state of Flonda, 
Dr. Eissey said that the tunds 
will be used tor renovations, 
equipment, and maintenance. 
"None of this money will be 
used for professors salaries, or 
to buy the president new 
suits," claimed Dr. Eissey. 

Citizens will not have to pay 
more public school taxes. The 
legislature has temporarily 
rolled back school millage 
from 8 mills to 6.75. 
Homestead exemptions will 
probably be increased to 

$25,000. Voting for the college 
will still result in paying less in 
local school taxes compared to 
last year. 

A half mill is constituted by 
fifty cents per thousand 
dollars of non-exempt 
assessed valuation. To an 
a\erage homeownei, this 
would mean about $1 per 
month foi two yeais. 

"Students who aie eligible 
to vote should make sure they 
are registered If all PBJC 
students can get two more 
people to vote for the levy, 
then that's all the votes we will 
need,"> stated Dr. Eissey. 

Citing an example of how 
badly new equipment is 
needed, Dr. Eissey remarked, 
"We are the best Dental 
HygieneCollege in the country, 
and we have to replace every 
dental chair. The ones we 
presently have do not have 
replacement parts because 
they are so old."

Mrs. Anstead, who served 
as trustee for more than eight 
and a half years, was praised 
by Dr. Edward M. Eissey, 
PBJC President, for her 
interest and effort. 

"I know of no other board 
member who has given more 
time and study to the affairs of 
the college," Dr. Eissey said. 

Dr. Phillip Lichtblau, board 
chairman, said Mrs. Anstead 
was an example other trustees 
could follow. "She knew her 
job and did it well," Dr. 
Lichtblau said. 

Dr. Sam Bottosto, Social 
Science Department Chair- 
man, said he knew he spoke 

for faculty and students in 
saying that Mrs. Anstead's 
keen and intelligent interest in 
the college would be sorely 
missed by all. He called her 
the "most dedicated" trustee. 

Mrs. Anstead was awarded 
a plaque as a token of her 
service as a trustee and as 
chairman of the board. 

She said her husband had 
recently completed his first 
marathon race, and her 
feelings were somewhat like 

She said they were both 
proud of finishing the course 
even though they may have 
had to walk the last six miles, 
"There is a feeling of 

satisfaction in knowing that 
you have done your very 
best, "she said. 

Dr. Eissey announced that 
the February meeting of the 
board will again be at the 
Glades Campus, but will be on 
the fourth Wednesday, Feb. 
27, rather than the third. 

He announced the appoint- 
ment of Willard Findling to a 
four year term as trustee. 

Dr. Eissey said there were 
now a total of more than 180 
speaking engagements for the 
millage, and said more were 
being sought. He reported 
good results so far, with no

Thursday, January 31 at 2

Hey man, why not cut the Seventies lingo? 

It has become increasingly 
apparent, especially in the last 
three weeks, that we are no 
longer approaching the 80's - 
we are in them. This may 
sound obvious, but how many 
times have you found yourself 
writing 1979 on class assign- 
ments? And how often do you 
use one of those old, outdated 
phrases that should have 
exited along with the 70' s? 

To use one of those phrases 
for descriptive purposes, we 
must straighten out and fly 
right and start creating our 
own phrases to carry into the 
new decade. 

It would be difficult to 
suggest possible popular 80's 
phrases, so the remainder of 
this column will be designated 
toward exterminating phrases 
that have overstayed their 
welcome. There is no need to 
point them out-they will be 

easy to recognize. 

After all, if we can put a 
man on the moon we can 
rearrange some of our 
speaking habits. 

Always try to avoid being 
grossed out or burned out, 
never pig out, flip out or freak 
out, and don't get caught out 
of it; get with it. 

Never use the word heavy 
unless you are a weightlifter, 
or turkey unless you are a 
cook. And don't get down to 
the nitty-gritty unless attend- 
ing a Dirt Band concenrt. 

Get your act together for the 
new year. Be mellow, but 
don't get too laid back or your 
old man and old lady might 
wonder what you're getting 

Know where you're at - 
remember cosmic jive just 
plays with your head. Enjoy 
things don't get into them, 

and don't accept too much 
feedback or life will become a 

Some of these words and 
phrases may actually be 
rejects from the late 60's, but 
no one can tell for sure. One 
thing that is quite certain is 
that language, and especially 
slang, can endure a number of 

Slang is a good indication of 
speech progress for a year or 
decade. If young adults are to 
continue using words and 
phrases whose stems were 
introduced in the late 60's and 
early 70's, then chances are 
that the 1980's slang and 
speech will be a bit dull 

The bottom line is that we 
must face reality and put slang 
on hold before it becomes 
extremely tacky. Otherwise 
it's back to square one. 

The Seventies are gone - 
And here comes the Eighties 

For some people the event occurred without 
much recognition, but probably not for many, as 
the 1970' s were a traumatic decade for our 
nation as well as the rest of the world. The 
seventies have come and gone. 

In retrospect, those years were not easy ones 
for America. The decade's outstanding 
event— Watergate— had us watching the first 
president in our history resign from the nation's 
highest office, after watching what was possibly 
our worst political scandal that left us totally 
mistrusting the government as we knew it. We 
ended up looking for something new, and in 
1976, as we celebrated the 200th birthday of the 
United States, we elected Jimmy Carter. 

He has been there for three years and now we 
don't know if we want him to continue in office. 

We finally withdrew our troops from 
Southeast Asia, leaving behind thousands of 

tericans dead and wounded, yet we refused 

dmit defeat. Then we had to find a way to 

with the men who returned from Vietnam 

after that experience, had a hard time 

ng at all. 

fe were shocked into the reality of the 

dangers of nuclear power in 1979 by the event 
that occured at Three Mile Island in 
Pennsylvania. Before that, few people had 
heard of Three Mile Island, now it's a household 

Not only did atomic energy become a 
problem, but energy in general. Gasoline and 
other oil products have increased in price more 
than fourfold putting the crunch on our pockets 
and our conservatory conscience. 

And just as the prospects of ultimate peace in 
the Middle East looked inevitable, Iran spoke 
up, By taking control of the American Embassy 
in Tehran and holding hostages to "insure" the 
returned of the deposed Shah, American 
entered the 1980's almost as confused, angry 
and disgusted as it entered the 1970's. 

But here we are. Now the question seems to 
be — what are we going to do'O 

Obviously, the answer remains to be seen. Let 
us hope that we can hold together as a nation 
and bring about a peaceful end to our problems 
in Iran and a sensible end to our problems with 
energy, making this decade productive rather 
than traumatic. 

Beachcomber covers race 

This is it 1980. It's election year again. 

Election years traditionally bring with them confusing issues ' 
with confusing answers filled with redundant rhetoric from far 
too many candidates, especially when the year brings & 
presidential race, as this one does. ^ \ 

Sifting through all of that to find out which candidate deserves-' 
your vote and holds closest to your ideals can be a very time 
consuming and mind boggling process which many people have ' 
grown to feel is useless. Therefore, they end up voting for the 
name they find the most familiar, or just plain saying ' 'forget 

Fortunately, people have begun to learn that the presidential 
elections are too important to "forget" or ignore, but that 
doesn't make candidate selection any easier. 

Who shall it be this year Carter& Kennedy? Regan? 

Connolly? Bush? Baker? Brown? And the list goes on. 

The Beachcomber will periodically be running articles and 
editorials on the candidates; who they are", what they've done, 
what they stand for and what their plans are to try and help 
people make that choice. But the Beachcomber and the media 
can only help. In the end the choice is yours alone. 

So pay attention, read up, whatch what's going on in the 
world and what the candidates feel about it, then use that 
knowledge when stepping up to cast your ballot. It will help to 
clear the fog of names and buttons in the voting booth. 

Oh, and good luck! Let's hope the best man DOES win.

Glaucoma clinic set for today 

In a continuing effort to 
provide free medical services, 
the PBJC Health Clinic is 
offering a Glaucoma test 
sponsored by the Palm Beach 
County Health Department. 

The no-cost exam, open to 
students, faculty, and their 
families will be given today 
only in the Nurses Office 
located in AD O from 9-12 
a.m. and 1-4 p.m. No advance 
registration is necessary. 

* ' We encourage everyone to 
take advantage of this free 
test," urged Mrs. Mary 
Cannon R.N., campus nurse. 

Glaucoma, the second 
leading cause of blindness in 
Florida is a serious condition 
of the eye in which the 
pressure within the eyeball is 
increased. This intraocular 
pressure exerts itself upon the 
delicate nerve fibres in the 
back of the eye. Gradually, 

nerve damage occurs, result- 
ing in blindness. 

The examination itself is 
quite simple., quick and 
painless. Drops are first 
inserted into the eyes to 
deaden nerves. Then, a 
tonometer, a small instrument 
is used to measure the 
pressure within the eye. 

If the disease is discovered 
early, and if prompt and 
persistent treatment is carried 
out, then most authorities 
agree that the disability from 
glaucoma can be halted. The

"Rabbis Dream Messiah

indeed a catchy caption. 
Shabetai Shiloh, a sage of

Arab-Israeli conflict from 
clues in the Bible. The chief 
'rabbi of the Western Wall in 
Jerusalem is "certain Israel

Surprised? We shouldn't 
have been if we read our 
Bibles. The signs of the times 
are all set right. Six weeks 
ago, The Wall Street Journal 
published the facts that Russia 
was running out of oil reserves 
and the latest "Five-Year 
Economic Program" had 
flopped. Russia had two 
alternatives: Revolution with a 
major Depression or War. We 
should have been readyfor it

of the times.

What is China doing?"

Read Ezekiel 38 and you will 
find confirmation. Do we take 
the rabbis as "Foolish 
dreamers?" Remember Jesus 
said, "In such a time as you 
think not, I will come."

just a dreamer when he told

Watson B. Duncan 
The Big "D" 

The sound of outrageous laughter from the PBJC auditorium 
doesn't always mean a comic play is being performed. What is 
usually signifies is that Watson B. Duncan's English literature 
class is once again in full swing. 

Having taught at PBJC since 1948, Duncan is an easy man to 
spot on campus. His loud clothes and witty one-liners are 
trademarks well known by students and faculty. 

He has a way with words, too. He uses and abuses them 
during his lectures, which are anything but boring. Admittedly, 
English literature can be a dry subject. But he uses his own 
unique style of wit and drama to make the characters "come to 
life," ashepHtsit. 

He gives credit for his techniques to two teachers he had in 
high school . Even then he showed promise as an instructor. As 
he recalls, "One of them told me that some day I would teach 
Shakespeare, " he said. 

1 Duncan doesn't just "teach" Shapespearc.he lives it. 

fiferring to him as "the big S," he quickly refutes the claim 

fat famous bard's works were written by another. "There are 
4 ways some people out there who are ready to claim anything, J ' 
he says with a grin. 
Relaxing in his office, he seems at home surrounded by

ing Burt Reynolds. He tells a story of a troubled Burt, 
ling to the area after losing his football scholarship at 
ida State University due to an injury. 
urt had been in one of Duncan's classes, and Duncan saw 
e tlfe spark of talent in him. "I suggested he try out for a play we 
were presenting at the time called "Outward Bound," he 
remembers. "But had never considered acting but decided to 
Hive it a try." 

Reynolds was great in "Outward Bound," and Duncan helped

"Nosferatu, The Vampyre 1 

by Mark Mitchell 
"Nosferatu, The Vampyre," written and 
directed by Germany's Werner Herzog, is one 
of the finest vampire genre movies to be 
released in many years. 

The movie is characteristically European, for 
it is marked by a subtly, intelligence and 
extreme purity seldom if ever found in modern 
American films. This purity is probably the most 
profound aspect of the movie. The scenery is 
majestic and the sets are secondary to action 
instead of features rival the actors. The 
music, Wagner's "Das Rheingold" and Gounod's 
"Sanctus" offered a tremendous alternative to 
dialogue and created vivid milieus. Lastley, 
subtle nucances of action and expression 
replaced extraneous and pepetitive dialogue. 
Humor was not overly frequent, but what there 
was was disarmingly straightforward and 

This film is a total reversion to F.W. 
Murnau's silent classic of 1922, which featured 
the same title. It is a sound and intelligent 

The vampire himself is far different than in 
any movie since the original. He is not the 
arrogant, provocative and sexual character 
portrayed by Langella. He is a study of 
mysticism, lonliness, and sophistication. The 
characterization by the semi-legendary Klaus 
Kinski, who has been herealded "the only 
genius in films today" is on no account to be 
missed. He is flawless, violent and humourous. 

Jonathan Harker is sent to Transylvania to 
arrange the sale of an estate to Count Dracula. 
His four week journey was a bitter and lonely 
experience because no one would aide anyone 
associated with Dracula. In fact, all Harker 
receives along the way is advice to turn back. Of 
course, he doesn't.

He has a dramatic introduction to Nosferatu ' 
and in the course of two or three days is bitten ! 
by his host. Business had been taken care of so 
the vampire left for his new home with an 
enterage of black coffins. On the voyage, the 
entire crew fell victim to plague and death. 
Miraculously, the ship made it to its destination, ( 

Jonathan too flees home in hopes of saving 
his beautiful wife from Dracula. Unfortunately, 
he lapses into a comatose state and has to be 
taken to his home by strangers. He ts so 
delerious upon his arrival that he does not even 
recognize his wife. 

The townspeople searched the ghost ship and 
concluded that it had been ravaged by plague, 
so they went to their homes in hopes of not 
catching it. Nonetheless, myriads died In an 
innovative sequence, we saw people dancing 
and singing in the streets and then saw the 
same places swarming with rats. Death was 
inevitable and the philosophy was to "enjoy 
each day that is left." 

Elizabeth realizes what she must do to 
destroy Nosferatu. This is after she understands 
what has happed to Jonathan. She enlists the 
help of Dr. Van Helsing, but, he being a man of 
modern science, disregards her pleas as archaic 
and absurd. 

To destroy the vampire, "it takes a woman of 
pure heart to make him foreget the crow of the 
cock." Armed with this knowledge, Elizabeth 
was able to become both a heroine and a 
cartye— but for how long? "In the interest of 
best Journalism, I'll tell no one. " 

To one not familiar with foreign films, this 
may appear to be just another vampire movie. If 
you consider what has been presented in this 
review, then you should have a greater 
appreciation for this descendant of that 
revolutionary movie of 60 years ago.

We are such stuff as dreams are made of. " 

by Barbara Pedersen 

Is it possible to live out a 
fantasy in a dream? Do 
dreams express inner wishes? 
What main purpose do dreams 

Dreams may provide 
releases of psychological 
tension. So it seems that 
evidence is pointing this way. 

Everyone experiences 
tension in everyday life 
situations. For example, one 
can experience tension in 
conforming to standards of 
society. People strive to act in 
the way that is socially 
acceptable according to the 
expectations of social peers. 

According to David Foulkes 
in The New Psychology of 
Sleep parts of our personal- 
ities are therefore repressed 
that are undesireable or 
unacceptable during waking 

Furthermore, as a result of 
waking Me repression tension 
will accumulate during the 
day. Most people do not 
consciously know how to deal 
with the tensions of waking 
life. But in dreams the picture 

During the dream state, 
accumulated tensions may be 
released because of the free 
expression in dreams. Accord- 
ing to Calvin Hall and Verna 
Nordby in The Individual and 
His Dreams, one enjoys a sort 
of "holiday through dreams." 
Unfortunately, most of these 
logical ideas have not been 

As a result of free 
expression available in 
dreams, Sigmund Freud 
speculated that hidden wishes 
are revealed and fulfilled. He 
stated, "Dreams represent the 
hidden fulfillment of wishes 
and through them inhibitions 
are released and tensions are 
relaxed." Today, most 
psychologists do not accept 
Freud's theories because they 
are based on little evidence. 

Another theory that is 
controversial is problem 
solving through dreams. Some 
belive that the common 
expression "I'll sleep on it" 
just might have some kind of 
meaning. In addition, some 
believe that when problems 
are solved through dreams 


'~*^&^/&G& :> 

tensions are released. 

Today, psychologists agree 
that dreaming is a definite 
necessity. This was proven in 
dream deprivation experi- 
ments, whereby a person is 
not permitted to dream. 
According to E.L. Hartmann 
in Introduction to Psychology 
Exploration and Application, 

as summarized by the author 
Dennis Coon, "People 
deprived of dream sleep 
experience memory lapses, 
difficulty concentrating, and 
become tense and anxious 
during the day.. It appears 
that... dreaming may be 
essential to keep the brain in 
good working order." Also, 

stressful people dream more 
than others 

So, one theory is accepted: 
Dreams are a necessary thing 
for proper mental and thereby 
physical functioning. How 
they work is the question.

Lillion/a short story by L.D. Stevens 

She had always been easily swayed. 
Perhaps it was laziness. Maybe her lack 
of purpose and discipline was the cause. 
Someone, not so very long ago, had said, 
"Lillian, you are a Cancer and like the 
moon, the great reflector of those who 
surround you. Be careful with whom you 

i Today Lillian felt awful. She had been 
oi^ a wild forty-eight hour fling with her 
past and now she was left with the bitter 
effects: shaky hands, a hangover that 
just wouldn't quit and an apartment 
whose atmosphere spoke of impulsive 
abandonment. " 

She had tried the "great sleep 
method of avoidance. That what she 
used to do when she was nineteen: curl 
up in bed and sleep for days... thinking 
that when she awoke, everything would 
be different. But it never did work. And 
now, she couldn't even sleep anymore. 
So, she washed the huge mountain of 
decaying dishes on the side of the sink 
and thought... about her life. It made her 
feel kind of sick; the decaying dishes 
were appropriate. 

Lillian wasn't dumb. In fact, she had a 
aood brain. But she never went in one 
direction long enought to prove to 
herself that she did. Because of this, 
Lillian considered herself a failure - a 
eross mistake made by her parents 
during an impulsive intimate moment. 
She was sure she wan't a product of 

pl peopll'told her she was charming. 

"Berne charming," zlilhan would 
oroclaim cynically, "does not pay the 
SSt and does not tasure happiness. 
Besides, its trite and shallow. 

Emotional trauma stuck to Lillians life 
like the burnt rattatoullie stuck to her 
favorite cassorole dish... it seemed to 
never come off. 

Once, when she was younger, Lillian 
had owned a shiny sliver-blue Cutlass 
that peeled-out impressively when she 
got upset with people. One day the 

brakes went out on it so she took it to the 
Sears store and left it. Lillian never 
returned and for two years, complained 
bitterly that she didn't have a car. When 
people would ask her why she didn't go 
back and get it, Lillian would say, "What 
would they think of me? No one leaves a 
car for two years in 'a Sears store without 
picking it up." 

Lillian was very concerned about how 
people thought of her. 

Emotional trauma was Lillian's shield, 
her banner of standards in life. She 
carried it with incredible strength and 
perserverance. She affected others with 
it as well. Among these casualties were 
devestated men left in the wake of his 

When she left Joe, she sadly told him, 
"It is not that I do not care for you, its 
just that I am not attracted to you and 
never have been." 

He had asked her to be honest. 

The next week, Lillian received a call 
from Joe who rather calmly informed her 
that he had been wrong about women 
He had never really liked them and had 
just wanted to please his parents. 

From then on, her little sister would 
shisper to her dates that Lillian made 
men turn into homosexuals. 

Lillian finished the dishes as she was 
reflecting on the fact that her life stank 
like the week-old garbage in the can. Her 
stamina was sinking like a corpse in 
cement shoes. She decided to help it 
along. On her way to the bathroom she 
peeked in on her beau who was asleep on 
the sagging twin bed. It is best he 
doesn't know I am so depressive, she 
thought, he is always so happy. 

Lillian reached for the bottle of ten 
milligram baby-blue Valiums b her 
medicine closet - only to find they were 
gone. She went if\ to ask Harry if he 
knew anything about them; only to find 
that Harry wasn't breathing anymore. 

Lillian's life kept sinking like a corpse 
in cement shoes...

January 13, "that means some

that's why we are here to 

Seufert, who has a Masters 
degree in Social Work, is the 
Director of "Women's 
Horizons." an organization 
that is primarily interested in 
women who must start a 
second career, the working 
woman, and the displaced 
homemaker. "We hope to 
become an advocacy group 
representing women in the 
community," Seufert relayed 
to the persons attending the 

The organization, which 
opened last November, is 
located m the downtown West 
Palm Beach YWCA and is 
sponsored by the Junior 
Women's League. "We 
started last November, 
although our doors have only 
been opened fourteen days. 

But. in that short amount of 
time, that we have been in 
existance, we have already 
seen 45 women, ' ' she said. 

Women's Horizon's offers 
many programs which are 
greatly needed in this area. 
They provide counseling with 
peer support groups, career 
life planning, workshops, 
seminais, short courses which 
are lead by both professional 
women in the community who 
donate their time to 
"Women's Horizon's" and 
from volunteer workers. "My 
secretary and myself are the 
only two persons on a payioll 
for their work at Women's 
Horizon's," Seufert added. 

They also have a referal 
service to community 
resources, employment op- 
portunities, college resources, 
and give access to the center's

At this time, only women are

a part of this unique program. 
"Flex-time" allows eveiy

Pacers open season 
With double victory 

The PBJC Baseball team opened their 1980 baseball season under head coach 
Dust.v Rhodes last Saturday at home with an impressive double header win. 

The baseball team played a double header against the New York-Long Island 
All-Stars; the Pacers took the first game 4-3 and won the second 7-2. 

The Pacers have always had a tough schedule and this years is no exception. 
With such rivals as Dade-South and Indian River, it figures to be a tough campaign. 
The Pacers will be playing a 60 game schedule. The Pacers next home games will 
be on January 22, 25 and 29 at 2:00 p.m. 

Rhodes is looking forward to a prosperous season. "If our younger players gain 
matuiity early, then we will be in good shape by seasons end." As of now, the 
Pacers are heading in the right direction.

Major league expansion should be expanded 

There has been talk around the 
National Basketball Association, the 

, .National Football League and Major 

. League Baseball towards expansion. 

Some of the more popular cities 

mentioned were: Dallas, Cincinnati, 

Mineapolis and Washington, D.C. 

In the NBA, they are looking forward 

* to expansion next year for one city. The 
city with the inside track is Dallas. If a 
new franchise in Dallas does occur, the 

"* city will join Houston and San Antonio in 

" the NBA Texas fiasco. 

Instead of the professional leagues 
looking into such cities as Dallas, who 
already has failed once in professional 
basketball, why not look into a new area 
who's fans have supported teams 
throughout the country? . . 

Why is there a need for expansion in 
an already sports crowed area, when 
there are states who are starving tor 
their initial team? Kentucky and 
Alabama do not support a single team, 
Indiana has one team (Pacers, 

- basketball) and Florida has two iMj 
(The Bucs and the Dolphins; football) 
Excluding Canada's eight teems, there 
are eighty-nine professional sports 

franchises. While some states quest for 
teams, states like California support 
thirteen teams, New York carries nine, 
Pennsylvania and Missouri boasts six a 

piece. . . 

There has been some hesitation by 
owners to move to such areas as 
Birmingham, Pheonix, New Orleans and 
Des Moines because of earlier failures in 
the World Football League, American 
Basketball Association and the World 
Hockey Association, With strong teams 
supporting them, the skeptical areas 
should suffice as areas such as Denver 
and Hartford have. The American 
Football League did have problems due 
to expansion, but thanks to strong 
opponents and the Super Bowl (which 
pitted NFL and AFL champions), the 
league did survive quite well, thank you. 

States who do not bear a major league 
baseball team have to be considered 
strongly for all upcoming expansion 
before any already rendering states. 
Major League Baseball will be looking 
into expansion for either the 1981 or the 
1982 season. Cities mentioned were: 
Washington, D.C, New Orleans, 
Denver, Miami and Tampa. 

If the Okland Athletics do move to 
Denver, then the two Florida cities are 
the top picks. In a survey conducted by a 
South Florida newspaper, the poll 
showed that a large number of Floridians 
support a move by baseball to the port 
Lauderdale/Miami area. 

Florida carries a large number of 
spring training games and also supports 
a minor league system, (Florida State 
League) which will help Florida's cause 
since both bring in big money to its 
respective franchises. 

As of now, Tampa does have the edge 
in receiving a baseball team. Tampa has 
more year round residence 'than that of 
Miami. Tampa has a newer stadium. 
Tampa fans have showed more support 
to their teams (Bucs and Rowdies) than 
the Miamians have shown towards theirs 
(Dolphins and Strikers). One strong 
point for Miami is the big money that 
will be in the southern part of Florida if 
the casinos are allowed in. If Florida 
does not receive a major league team, 
then there has to be some dirty politics 

Speaking of dirty politics; 
Representative Sisk of California has 

said many times that if a baseball team is 
not brought into the Washington.D-C. 
area by the next expansion, there will be 
some peering into baseballs doings by 
the United States Senate. The ultimatum 
by Sisk may work. Do not be surprised if 
a new team does hit the nations capital 
by next expansion. The Washington 
Senators had failed a a team in the early 
1970' s and were switched to the T«xas 
Rangers. /- 

• Expansion is important to professional 
sports and to the states concerned, since 
expansion brings in added revenue to 
the sport and to the state. Areas who <lo 
not bear a team are unequalled choices 
among potential cities.! If professional 
sport owners are smart, expansion 
should be brought to the states that do 
not support teams. Before the owners 
make another one of their numerous 
mistakes, they should see that expansion 
to an already overpopulated sports area 
will hurt both the new and the old teams 
concerned. This type of expansionism 
will hurt the fans concerned, and isn't 
that the most important thing? So, 
instead of losing some old fans let us 
bring some new ones in!

Shriver campaigns for Kennedy 

by Celia Vock 
Design and Copy Editor 

Campaigning for Presiden- 
tial Candidate Edward 
Kennedy, (Dem., Mass.), 
Sargent Shriver spoke to a 
crowd at PBJC on Friday, 
conveying some ideas for the 
future and drumming up some 
enthusiam for the election. 

Shriver, Kennedy's brother- 
in-law, was the first director of 
the Peace Corps under John 
Kennedy, former Ambassador 
to France, vice-presidential 
candidate and in 1976 was 
himself a candidate for 

"Many of us are living in a 
fool's paradise," Shriver 
stated, "and we have to begin 
to look more closely at what's 
going on in the world. We live 
in an era of radical social, 
economic and cultural 

Stating that this country 
puts too much emphasis on the 
business community, Shriver 
conveyed that what we need to 
look for are "more scholars, 
saints and statesmen. We 
need to change our priorities 
towards super schools, super 
students and super 

"I'm not running so I can 
tell you the truth," he 
continued. "Everyone has to 
be prepared to recover hard 
work, courage and honesty. 
That starts with young 

"In the 1960's racism was 
rampant, and it was young 
people who marched with 
Martin Luther King, who went 
downtown in the south and sat 
in restaurants for the first 
time. They refused to be 
treated like second class 
citizens. You don't have to 
wait until you're 50 to get 
things done." 

"It was young people that 
started the fight against the 
war in Vietnam, and it was 
young people who won the 
fight; young people who spoke 
up for equal rights, reminded 
us to love the land and that we 
had not only founding fathers, 
but founding mothers, too. 

"My brother-in-law is 
Fighting for equal rights 

Speaking on health care, 
legislation Kennedy is well 
known for, Shriver said that 
"health care in our society 
should be a right of the 
people, not a priviledge. If it's 

good enough for the president, 
it's good enough for the 

"Our future depends on our 
ability to be fair to those whom 
life has been unfair." 

"A government that was 
able to deliver bombs to the 
rice fields of Cambodia in a 
few hours should be able to 
deliver rice to Cambodians in a 
few hours," he said. 

"I am here to speak for a 
man whose political life has 
been dedicated to what I have 
been talking about. Kennedy 
is a successful political leader. 
Bills he has written on these 
matters have passed through 
Congress. He was the first to 
speak of recognition of the 
Chinese people." 

"President Carter has never 
been there (Russia)," Shriver 
said, addressing the "Carter 
Doctrine" and his foreign 
policy, "and he doesn't know 
the, people and their culture. 
We are suffering from a man 
who has the best of motives 
but doesn't know how to 

"We need a new approach- - 
that's what Kennedy can give

What's that racquet? 

Racquetball is a once obscure sport which has come of age in 
the last few years. Why, just check the PBJC racquetball courts - 
always crowded these days. A real popular place to spend the day, 
especially if vou don't attend PBJC in the first place. 

The racquetball rats have sniffed out the PBJC cheese. I mean. 
« ho wants to pay money for membership to a club when they can 
come and play on our wonderful, well-lit courts with the nice fence 
so vou don't have to chase your ball? _ 

the answer is not to totally exclude the community trom the 
courts but to somehow provide PBJC students with some degree 
of priority-possibly some sort of membership card. Even sign-up 
sheets would help, allowing students to sign-up for a court at a 

certain time of day. . 

Time limits are important and should be m effect to prevent 
long waits and overcrowding. A 45 to 60 minute limit would 
cert aims be in order. 

Any one of these revisions would help students at PBJL earn 
their "time for their activity and P.E. fees. Nowhere else on the 
campus are there more non-students, and nowhere else are PBJC 
students more open to exploitation from outsiders. 

Buddy's Rich with talent 


U Aw w^. jfj v 


bv Bill Meredith 

The big band era produced a few great 
drummers. That was so long ago, 
through-the 40's, 50's and early 60's. 
Too bad none of them play anymore - 
how many of them could even still be 
alive? Well one is alive and quite well - 
Buddy Rich. 

Rich was the spark of Tommy Dorsey s 
band decades ago, and has maintained 
and perhaps even strengthened the 
quality of his drumming ever since - 
even now at age 62. You heard right. 

On January 18, Buddy Rich showed 
the audience at the Paramount Theatre 
in Palm Beach what an old man can do. 

Rich and his fourteen-piece orchestra 
were excellent, slipping in just over an 
hour of tight, progressive, upbeat jazz. 

Concerts which teature drummers can 
get a bit tedious, but Buddy never let it 
come close to that point, letting the 
entire orchestra showcase themselves 
for the majority of the performance. 

The twelve-man horn section 
controlled the flow and provided some 
percussion in spots, with sparce 
keyboard playing and absolutely flawless 
bass guitar. 

It was only near the end of the second 
encore that Rich himself took the 
spotlight. Following a brief, "ordinary" 
drum solo, he began the unheard-ofs - a 
cymbal solo, a rim solo, and a short solo 
on the drumsticks themselves. 

Overall, a great showing by a master 
technician and a fine backing group of

Should we boycott the Olympics! 





The invasion of Afghanistan 
by Soviet troops in the past 
weeks has started a hot debate 
in this country: should the 
United States boycott the 1980 
Summer Olympic games in 
Moscow as a form of protest? 

The opinion of many is a flat 
no, and that includes many 
sectors of the athletic 
community, They say that the 
Olympics should remain 
apolitical; thai the athletes 
involved in the games should 
not be exploited by political 
pressure from President 

This holds some validity 
when considering the blatant 
fact that potential Olympians 
train most of their lives, strive 
to beat the best at what they 
do to enter the games and 
perhaps collect the ultimate 
athletic prize, an Olympic gold 

But the games have never 
been without politics. It could 
be a drastic mistake on the 
part of the United States 
Olympic Committee to oppose 
a boycott if that is the decision 

of President Carter, even 
though they legally have the 
right to do so. 

The proposed boycott has 
been supported by the 
Republican National 
Committee, who stated that 
U.S. participation "would 
tend to legitimize what the 
Soviet government has done," 
and they called for the 
International Olympic 
Committee (IOC) to remove 
the games from Moscow or at 
least encourage other nations 
not to participate in the 

This is nothing new, at least 
not for the rest of the world. 
Spain, Holland and 

Switzerland withdrew from the 
Games in 1956 in protest of the 
Soviet invasion of Hungary; 
the threat of a Soviet boycott 
convinced the IOC to keep 
South Africa out of the 1968 
games and in 1976 thirty 
African nations boycotted the 
Montreal Olympics after the 
IOC refused to bar New

Editorial Feedback 

Dear Editor: 

While on sabbatical leave this year I have 
been fortunate to continue receiving the 
Monday Report and the Beachcomber. I have 
followed the debate on the attendance policy 
with great interest. 

As a part of one of my courses here at USM 
(University of Southern Mississippi) I visited 
one of the nearby junior colleges (Jones Junior 
College). During our meeting with the 
President. Dr. Tisedale, and the academic dean, 
the conversation turned to the attendance policy 
at their institution. 

Summarily, this is their policy. A student is 

allowed one absence for each time the class 

meets per v\eek; for a three hour a week class, 

three absences total for the semester. After the 

three absences are accrued, the student 

-eceives a warning that he is on probation for 

lat semester from the college. All instructors 

e required to maintain accurate records of 

tendance. Should the student be absent from 

ass twice as man} times a semester as the 

class meets a week, he is diopped from the 

class. Should the student be dropped from the 

class, after the tenth week of the semester he 

receives a WP (withdrawal passing) or WF 

(withdrawal failing). This is also true of a 

student dropping a class on his own. A student 

may drop a class up to the last day of the 

When the academic dean was quired about 
this compulsory attendance requirement he 
stated that there were two reasons. First, the 
institutions obligation for being accountable for 
the students education. It is their philosophy 
that any absence from class reduces the 
students chance for success in that class. 
Secondly, the community (this institution serves 
seven counties) is very interested in the success 
of the students they are sending to that 

It might be appropriate here to include also 
that in my own classes at the university I mu't 
attend classes and attendance is checked by 
everyone of my instructors. I am talking about 
classes on the doctoral level. It is a policy at the 
university to check the attendance in all classes. 
This letter is in no way meant to support one 
side or the other, but rather informational. 
Accountability by both students 'and 
administration is a factor in education

When you're thinking about college 
you've got to be thinking about money. 
Lots of money these days. College is 
also a good reason to think about the 
Army. Yes, the Army. The Army s 
Educational Assistance Program is 
available not only for 3 and 4 year 
enlistments, but now in special career 
fields you can do it in two. You can 
accumulate well over $7,000 for college 
in that short time. Ask your Army 
Recruiter for the details.

In the broadcast media the 
hours can be long and at times 
unpredictable. There is no 
such thing as a set 
schedule. From the moment the 
cameras are on until Bill Britt 
has signed off for the evening 
the television viewer only sees 
an even and pleasantly 
presented news program. 
They do not see the hard work 
that has gone into producing 
such a news program. Nor do 
they see how much time it has 
taken of everyone both on and 
off camera. 

Bob Brown will be the first 
to tell you that he loves what 
he's doing but cautions those 
interested in a broadcasting 
career. "Man\ students are 
not really filled in during their 
training as to how demanding 
this profession can be ' ' 

It is an interesting and a 
"never a dull moment" 
industry, though one in which 
people are definitely happ> 
and on the whole supportive of 
what they are doing. And the 
people on camera that are 
happy are so only because 
thev " knew what to expect 
when they chose it as their 
career. One thing is for certain, 
after spending time at a radio 
and television station: it is not 
a glamourous business. 

According to Brown, there 
is a big difference between 
print journalism and broadcast 
journalism. "A good journalist 
should have had the 
opportunity to experience 
both," he said. 

"While college curriculum 
in general is geared to print 
journalism, it is not really 
geared to broadcast 
journalism," adds Brown, who 
holds a minor in meterology 
from Kent State University in 
Ohio. "A university such as 
FAU, for example, has a good 
television training program in 
production but more emphasis 
is placed on the production 
rather than actual broadcast 

Brown also works as a news 
anchorman for WJNO radio. 
"My day in radio begins at 
5:30 a.m. and ends at noon, 
Monday through Friday. ' ' 

But "even with those hours 
and the demands that it places 
on a person, the industry is 
still rather prestigious one and 
one that does hold many 
varied opportunities for 
people. That could be the 
reason that Brown has 
remained in it for the past 
fifteen years.

Cagers shoot for playoff bid . . . 

. . While Dennis Graham looks for that "extra effort" 

by Jim HavTvard 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC basketball team 
continues their uphill struggle 
for contention in the Division 
IV race with a home game 
tonight at 7:30 against 
Miami-Dade South. 

Coach Joe Ceravolo's 
Pacers, beset by academic 
problems, injuries and a tough 
schedule in which they played 
every game in December on 
the road. The Pacers defeated 
Miami-Dade New World 
Center 83-72 Jan. 17 to 
even their conference mark at 
3-3 with eight conference 
games remaining. The team 
traveled to Broward Central 
for another important con- 
ference matchup on Saturday 

Freshman forward Louie 
Fuentes' 28 points, and the 
Pacers' overall domination of 
the boards led the way for the 
83-72 triumph over New World 
Center in Miami. The 6' -6" 
Fuentes, who also grabbed 15 
rebounds, scored 20 of his 
points in the second half to 
rally PBJC from a 41-37 
halftime defecit. 

Six foot-eight inch center 
Jeff Washington, playing his 
best overall game of the 
season, corralled 21 rebounds 
and scored 19 points to 
complement Fuentes. Leading 

scorer Howard Hoskm, added 
12 points and 14 rebounds as 
PBJC's front line combined for 
59 points and 50 caroms. 

Point guard Dennis 
Graham, playing an excellent 
floor game, totaled 14 points 
and numerous steals in 
directing the offense. 
Sophomoie Roger Williams, 
chipped in with eight points 
and excellent defensive play. 
Starting guard Bob Webster 
sat out the contest with a 
pulled stomach muscle. 

The Pacers have had an up 
and down season this year 
compiling a 10-8 overall 
record. After a fast start in 
which PBJC was ranked as 
high as third in the state, they 
suffered some tough losses 
during December's road trip. 
When semester grades came 
out, Coach Ceravolo was faced 
with an even tougher problem. 
Starting point guard Greg 
Jackson, his backup Dennis 
Graham, Jeff Washington, 
guard Chuck Pauldo, and long 
range bomber Careron Trail 
all became ineligible. 

Graham and Washington 
returned shortly but not before 
PBJC had dropped behind the 
leaders in Division IV. The 
Pacers have a tough hill to 
climb if they hope to repeat 
the heroics of the 1978 miracle 
team, but it is a goal that is 
still within reach.

The playgrounds of New 
York have set the framework 
for many great basketball 

The city schools are scouted 
by college recruiters from 
across the country m search of 
these athletes. 

One such athlete can be 
found here on our PBJC 
basketball team. He is starting 
guard Dennis Graham. Dennis 
is originally from Lafayette 
High School in Brooklyn, New 
York. He was an outstanding 
all-round athlete in high 
school - as track star. He also 
earned his first varsity letter in 
basketball as a sophomore. 
Dennis knows what it is like to 
play on a winning team. When 
in his junior year at Lafayette, 
the basketball team earned a 
national ranking as the fifth 
best team in the country. 

So now you ask, how does a 

New York "hoop" star find his 
way to Florida? "I had 
scholarship offers from other 
schools, but my high school 
coach Mr. Kirsnei, knows 
PBJC Assistant Coach Nike 
Barberi, who invited me to 
visit Florida. I liked PBJC very 
much, it is alot different from 
the big city." 

Dennis says he likes Florida 
"a real lot" and would like to 
continue playing ball at a 
Florida University after his 
graduation from PBJC 

When asked whether or not 
he thinks the Pacers can win 
the state title, Dennis replies, 
"absolutely. We must get as a 
team. The Pittsburgh Pirates 
had the family, the Steelers 
had togetherness; we must put 
it all together, everyone must 
work as a team." 

Dennis feels that the team 
has lost games they should 
have won. "Just a little extra 
effort by all, and we can go 
undefeated for the rest of the 
season," Dennis exclaimed.

Major Religions -Part!! 

What Is Man? 

All of the major religions 
discussed previously were 
built b\ men out of their 
desires to find answers for 
questions of life. 

The Judaeo- Christian faith 
is revealed to man and 
recorded as instructed-not 
dictated. But men, voluntarily 
controlled, recorded as Peter 
said, "hoi} men spoke as they 
were carried along by the Holy 
Spirit." a Peter 1:20,21) That 
record, the Bible, reveals 
origins and purposefulness of 
all things.

by God with built-in 
homeostasis, i.e., functioning 
balance. A series on Scientific

Laws of Thermodynamics is 

(4) The origin of Geography 
with the laying out of

and land and vegetation is 
spelled out in Genesis 1,2. 

(5) The origin of History 
with the recording of "that 
which is" or [hlistemi, the 
Greek word for History is true 
to external records. 

(6) The origin of evil and 
false teaching with the 
revealing of Satan and his 
power over the minds of men 
explains many crises today. 

(7) The origin of 
Futurologic Studies called 
"Prophecy"' is exciting,. 

(8) The origin of 
Life-Beyond-Earth-Life is 
recorded in the oldest existing

Voice Of Palm Beach Junior College

Member of the 


Lake Worth, Florida 

Crane offers "new personality and leadership" 


by Bill Meredith 

Five-term Congressman and Republican 
Presidential hopeful Philip Crane addressed 
PBJC faculty and students on Jan. 31 at the 
Sunshine Court. 

Mr. Crane is one of the youngest Presidential 
candidates at 49, and was the first candidate to 
announce his running for the presidency. He is 
also an author, a history professor, a member of 
the House Ways and Means Committee, and 
one of only fourteen Congressmen holding a 

With over ten years in Congress under his 
belt, Crane feels he has the experience 
necessary for a good President. His opinions 
were varied, but centered on two main 
controveries-the national debt and high taxes. 

"We have run up the most astronomical debt 
in the history of civilization," he said. "We 
must get the Republic back on a growth course. 
In three consecutive years we have run up 
record deficits, pushing the national debt up 
over a trillion dollars. 

Regarding high taxes, Crane feels that it is 
the taxes themselves that are crippling the 
economy. "I advocate a permanent, 
across-the-board tax cut to allow Americans to 
spend their money as they wish," he 
commented. "And I have introduced a bill," he 
continued, "for a new holiday on June 6, called 
National Tax Liberation Day, because that is the 
first day of the year that Americans begin to 
earn their own money." 

Crane believes government, not labor or big 
business, is the cause of inflation. He promotes 
a three-pronges attack on inflation - a 
constitional federal spending limitation, a 30 
percent tax cut, and a tax code index that would 
eliminate portions of taxes on a worker's salary, 
"From 1949 to 1969, the worth of the dollar was 

cut in half," he added, "and again from 1969 to 

On the Iranian situation, Crane quipped, 
"Mr. Carter must assume total responsibility 
for the hostage situation. Those people 
shouldn't have been in Iran in the first place. " 

Crane is in opposition to boycotting grain, 
"unless we boycott everything. Each dollar the 
Russians spend on grain gives them one less 
dollar to spend beefing up their military." 

On other major issues, Crane is against the 
military draft - "I've worked too hard for the 
volunteer army," and he favors gradual 
gasoline trucking deregulation. 

"We need your help in Florida," he 
admitted. "I was quite surprised and pleased 
that I was the overwhehrang second preference 
at the Republician Florida Presidential 
Preference Convention at Orlando in November. 
Mr. Regan was easily first, but I now know 1 
have a broad base of support in the state of 

"The world is ready for new faces, new 
personalities, and leadership," added Crane. 
"By the twentifirst century the average life span 
will have jumped from 73 to 91, there will be 
great break-throughs in medicine - cancer 
vaccines, artificial hearts, and synthetic blood." 

Crane went on to say, "We will have resolved 
all energy problems-fusion is expected around 
2010, and we will provide unlimited, cheap, 
clean and totally safe energy. Hydrogen will 
replace gasoline as the major fuel. ' ' 

"The work week will be drastically reduced to 
approximately three days; recreation will 
prosper and income will escalate. ' ' 

No one can know for sure if the future holds 
all these acheivements, but Phil Crane does 
indeed see the positive, rather than the 
negative, aspects of the future. And that in itself 
is quite refreshing.

A cold war's outside; 
And there's a "draft" 

America's most recent overseas endeavors and foreign policy 
flaws have again surfaced talked about re-enstating the 
ever-popular military draft. 

Once again young men {and possibly women) all over the U.S. 
are trying to enroll in college, or trying to keep from flunking out 
if they are already there. Planeticket sales to Canada are up - 
well, you know the story. 

And it all boils down to the individual. This is one case where 
the choice is truly yours , 

It is not an easy choice to make. We as Americans do not enjoy 
seeing fifty of our fellow citizens topped in an Iranian dungeon, 
or having our noses rubbed in the ground by the Soviet Union. 

But is war the only answer? Hopefully not. As Senator 
Kennedy said in a recent speech, why should we send another 
generation of young people to die for our elder's mistakes? He 
might have suggested Carter duel Breschnev for World War HI. 

It has taken two world wars for many Americans to realize 
what combat can do to a person-mentally as well as physically, 
and many are not ready to let it happen to themselves. Serving 
your country can be a disservice to your body and mind. 

The winner of a war only truly wins the battle, No country can 
judge themselves a winner when they measure their dead by the

Who's Running? 

The Candidates of 1 980 

Celia Vod 

Jerry Brown 

It's a sunny day in Washington, and Jerry 
Brown looks very much at home speaking to a 
crowd of thousands at an anti-nuclear power 

That is the kind of gathering at which the 
public has grown to expect to find, the Governor 
of California; a man who speaks up and acts on 
the causes he believes in, both in and out of his 
presidential campaign. 

Four years ago, at age 37, Brown made an 
impressive showing in the late primaries by 
defeating Jimmy Carter in three states. Last 
year, at age 40, he was re-elected governor of 
California by a margin .never before seen in that 
state's history. 

Now Brown is 41, and again setting out to 
gain the presidency. Though he has gained a 
"Wild" reputation with many by being seen in 
the company of rock singer Linda Ronstadt, his 
credentials hold up when under pressure. 

To begin with, Brown is a young man, 
younger than most candidates seeking the 
office. (In his own words he will be younger at 
the turn of the century than Ronald Reagan is 
today.) Consequently Brown has some young 
ideas. He is neither a raving liberal nor labled a 
conservative. Brown appears to access one issue 
at a time. For example, he holds the strongest 
anti-nuclear position among the liberal 
candidates and demonstrated this by posing a 
moritorium on atomic power plant construction 
in California shortly after the event in 
Pennsylvania, but he also supports the 
conservative position of a constitutional 
amendment to balance the federal budget. 

He supported the causes of United Farm 
Workers leader Ceasar Chavez, the presidential 
campaign of Eugene McCarthy in 1968 and 
backed the anti-war demonstration of the 
Vietnam era, but he strongly opposed property 
tax legislation (Proposition 13) in his own state. 

There is a governor's mansion in California, 
but Brown refuses to live in it. Instead one could 

find him residing in a small apartme: 
driving a Plymouth. 

"My principals are simple," Brown 
"Protect the earth, serve the people andej 
the universe," by that meaning this 
stepping forward in high-technology, 
energy, mass transit and space, on 
which he alone supports by sugge; 
doubling of the space program budget 
reduction of the role of the United Ski 
world affairs. 

And Brown doesn't just espouse pric; 
he acts on them. While he has been gov 
California the interests insofar as the 
concerned has moved towards -"$olar t: 
improvement of conditions for farm 
consumerism and bettering the envirw! 
and away from highways, big busine 
development interests California had un; 
corporate-minded Reagan. 

California's industry is still booiinc.] 
under Brown the legislature has reriV 
eliminated taxes on the poor and businey 
positions have been filled by more tha 1 
women and 760 members of other minoniZ' 

Now, while everyone knows what 
past looks like, people are beginning to 
what his future strategy will be w: 
campaign. Nobody, including Brown, s 
know, and when questioned Brown's 
"That's low-level intellectual activity." i 

Brown is a brilliant man as well as a* 
politician. He attended the University ofl 
Clara, a Jesuit school, the Umversjr 
California at Berkeley and graduated fre-t 
Law School. f 

His father, Pat Brown, was also a uk 
governor of California, and also a popular/ 

But the governorship doesn't seemi" 
enough for this Brown... He still wants | 
president. | 

Kennedy said that Jerry Brown "May if 1 
years ahead of his time." Still, he is nri- 
and he deserves an evaluation from you,

Editorial Feedback 

Dear Editor: 

I was upset when the fee for 
classes were raised a dollar 
and we had one week notice to 
pay. But when I have to sit 
through three presentations of 
the Half Mill wasting a total of 
an hour and a half of my paid 
education then, I begin to 
wonder if this college is really 
interested in the students 
education. The issue of the 
Half Mill should not be 
pressured on the students, 

because it is apt to turn them 
off instead of on. 
Name withheld upon request 

To The Editor: 

I am responding to the 
recent television program 
presented to the students at 
PBJC by Dr. Eissey concern- 
ing the Haif-Mill Levy.

Electric car jolts auto industry 




by Barbara Pedersen 
Staff Writer 

It is morning and almost 
time for class. Joe College 
struts out to his electric 
"Silver Volt" decked out in a 
sparkling silver suit. He tutns 
the ignition key with excite- 
ment. A vacuum-like whir 
sould is heard. He smiles. 
Dashboard needles come alive 
indicating volts rather than 

A scene from the far away 
future? No, in fact starting 
sometime next month you 
might see quite a few of these 
new sleek electric cars known 
as "Silver Volts" that will be 
test duven for the Electric 
Auto Company by local South 
Florida residents. 

The car was built by former 
Buick chief stylist Henry de 
Segur Lauve and Sir J. 

Samuel, a former engineer 
with a British electric vehicle 
firm. Mr. Samuel is president 
and chief executive officer of 
Electric Auto located in Troy, 

The "Silver Volt" differs 
from other electric cars in that 
they are not designed as the 
familiar econo box type 
models. In fact, the car looks 
According to Jeanne 
Whittaker, a reporter for a 
newspaper in Michigan, "The 
number of turned heads have 
proved that the car's aero- 
dynamic sweep have caught 
their attention." 

The auto has the common 
luxuries such as air condition- 
ing heating, power breaks, 
power steering, and power 
windows. But, the car does not 

have a fan belt, radiator, or 
carburator. But instead a large 
black compartment that 
contains a battery with energy 

The battery can be charged 
at home with a cost of 
approximately $1.15. A 
driving range of 70 to 100 
miles can be done between 
battery charges. 

That is cheaper than gas. 
But, will the public prefer to 
plug their fuel tank into a 
socket rather than a gas tank? 
The Electric Auto Company 
thinks so. Sir J. Samuel says, 
"We think that they will have 

So brace yourself for a 
double take if you see a sporty 
"Silver Volt" whizzing down 
your neighborhood street, It 
just might be Joe College 
racing off to class.

Capsule Movie Reviews 

By Mark Mitchell and Angee Morris 

Hie Black Hole, The Walt Disney 
Studio's latest space extravaganza, is a 
totally baffling movie. The special 
effects were fabulous as always and the 
plot itself was not bad. The obvious 
problem was the Disney did not want to 
be left out of the Space craze. The 
subject and medium were also not up to 
their usual standards. Disney should 
realize ih^t it will never surpass the 
early animated classics of Fantasia, 
Barnbi, and Sleeping Beauty. This is 
especially true now that several of the 
studio's original animators have 
defected. I will recommend the movie 
although it falls short of the best 
Disney traditions. 

La Cage Aux Folles is, in the opinion 
of this writer, one of the most original 
and hysterical French films of recent 
years. To date, the film has grossed 35 

million dollars and thus become one of 
the most successful films to hit the 
American market. This cinematic gem 
is always sophisticated (some may use 
naughty synonymously), beautifully 
photographed, and a fine example of 
cinema verite. The director handled a 
delicate subject with exceptional 
tenderness and aplomb. A Steve 
Martinesque modification may read, 
"It's like those French have a different 
way of doing everything." How glad I 

Basically, the film is about two aging 
homosexuals, one of whom has a son 
engaged to the daughter of a highly 
moral and political family. Familial 
arguments and subsequent resolutions 
are the main themes. 

If you have not seen La Cage Aux 
Folles, run, don't walk, to the Village 
Green theatres and do so immediately.

Star Trek, The Motion Picture: The 

characters Captain Kirk, Mr, Spock, 
Dr. McCoy, and Scotty, all of whom 
brought life to the television series 
"Star Trek", can now be seen in the 
much heralded movie. All of the 
hearlding being done by Paramount 
Studios. The bad news is that the series 
was several shades better than the 
movie. In a publicity release, 
Paramount revealed the exhorbitant 
costs of the film in both time and 
money; a forty million dollar budget, 
eight sound stages, and three years. It 
is obvious that only a small fraction of 
that budget was awarded to the writers 
in return for a decent script! One 
redeeming quality was, that unlike Star 
Wars, the special effects were not 
restricted to destruction of space 

vehicles and the like. Let us hope that 
the greatest compensation went to the 
special effects department and not the 
writers, or rather the prepetrators. It is 
odd, but Paramount is the only one 
with anything good to say about Star 

10: Dudley Moore appears to enjoy 
being cast into sexually manaical roles 
for he assumed a similar role in Foul 
Play. 10 is a bawdy, pathetic, and 
vulgar film about a forty year old man 
who realizes that life has passed him 
by. Bo Derek, Moore's voluptuous 
fantasy woman, has set women's lib 
back 30 years. She portrays a beautiful, 
mindless, sexy, "modern young 
woman". It is also very disheartening 
to see Julie Andrews cast into such a 
menial role. There are a few laughs 
but, unless your sense of humor runs to 
off color jokes, they are few and far

Why you s hou Id vote for L WHy SH0ULD J V0TE F0R THE tillage? 

the half-mill levy on 
March 11, 1980. 

For 46 years, Palm Beach Junior College has 
served you well. If you are one of the 70,000 
students we have served in the last 10 years, you 
already know this. If Palm Beach Junior College 
has not yet touched your life directly, You can be 
sure it will. 

College is not just for kids anymore. Last year, we 
served 21 ,000 students, and the average in credit 
classes was 29! In addition, we served thousands 
of older Americans m programs like our fabulous 
New Dimensions. 


If you live anywhere in Palm Beach- County you 
live near one of PBJC's four campuses. The 
Central Campus is at Lake worth. PBJC North is 
at Palm Beach Gardens and in northern West 
Palm Beach -- and will soon be at a new campus 
on PGC Blvd. PBJC Glades is at Belle Glade, and 
PBJC South is on the FAU Campus at Boca 


On Wednesday, February 6th from 8:00-4:00 p.m. at 
the Business Building Patio, the Palm Beach 
Bloodmobile will be awaiting donors. 

The Palm Beach Blood Bank is the major agency that 
supplies blood to all of the hospitals in the county. 
Without this valuable service, many lives would be lost 

However, in order to provide this service, it is 
imperative that blood be available and people are at 
this time the only source. 

Whole blood is only able to be kept for three weeks. 
So a constant supply is needed. 

All persons may give to the college's account or to 
their own family plan. The point is to give blood on 
Wednesday, February 6th between 8:00-4:00 p.m.

To become eligible for the 
scholarship, the recipients 
were required to attend at 
least six credit hours at the

least three credit hours during

"The Ad-Hoc Committee 
credits students, during their

their past performance in high 
school. For instance, if they 
belonged to any honor 
socities. Also, if they have 

been PBJC students in the 
past, we look at their grade 
point average from that time , "

Presidential Candidate Phil Crane 

During his campaign speech 
last Thursday, Phil Crane 
stated his position on several 
issues of concern to the 
Judaeo-Christian community. 
Candidate Crane strongly 
affirmed our country's God- 
centered foundation. 
Secondly, Crane endorsed the 
United States-Israeli bond. It 
is not surprising that these 
views were expressed by a 
man who is a historian with 10 
years experience in Congress. 
The strong God-fearing stand 
combined with the facts of 
history support his belief- 

On the subject of Israel, 
Crane stated that,"the country 
has a right to stand as a 

responsible nation without any 
other nation (or nations) 
imposing a serpentine peace 
or forcing some negotiable 
item on them." Furthermore, 
Crane asserted that the P.L.O. 
does not have the character or 
the proper backing to 
negotiate peace "for 
Palestinians." Crane's stand 
with Israel is Scriptural and 
politically sound for it is the 
only stable nation in the 
Middle East. 

Representative Crane con- 
firmed earlier articles in the 
"Son Sentential" that showed 
the Judaeo-Christian found- 
ation of our Country. In 
essence, Crane said, "Our 
system acknowledges God and 

runs its precepts on Biblical! 
concepts, but during thejl 
Post-Depression 'Enlighten | 
ment', such things as prayer, | 
the work ethic and payment ol I 
debts were shunted ftoirf 
schools. But every sessional 
Congress still opens isilff

"Furthermote, our nattffl* 
should return to teaching!

inherited. Citizens should also*

Sports Editorial 
The press vs the players : An ugly scene 

Conflict between athletes 
and sportswriters has become 
hard and heavy. Who is to 
blame for all the problems? Is 
it the press, the athlete, the 
fan or sports management? 

Today's athletes are being 
looked upon as high and 
mighty. Management babies 
their players, fans adore them 
and the press "tells it like it 

The three combinations 
combined have introduced a 
new type of athlete. The name 
of the athlete of the 1970's and 
the 1980's is, "The Spoiled 

With all the pats on the 
backs the athletes have been 
getting from fans and 
management, there has been 
one group who have been 
getting swift kicks m the butt 
for their unrelentless jobs. 

Even more important than 
the owners who pay for their 
services or the fans who pay to 

see the games, it is the press 
who really makes a sport. How 
else could the public find out 
about past and future 
happenings in the world of 
sports without the press? 

Athletes have been used to 
sportswriters who cover the 
game, write the story and ask 
no questions. Today, with 
players earning a million 
dollars a year, the press has 
become tough. The big 
problem is, when something 
good is said about an athlete, 
he loves it; when something 
negative is said, all hell breaks 
lose and the athlete can not 
handle the pressue. 

The San Francisco Giants 
who were flying high last year 
and enjoying it tremendously, 
weie near the bottom of their 
respective division. Internal 
conflict was evident. 

San Francisco Examiner 
writer Glen Schwarz, had 
written an article condemning 
the play of the Giants. One of 
the players who Schwarz wrote 

Pacers lose two in OT 

by JimHayward 
Sports Writer 

The Pacers' slim hope of winning the Florida Division IV 
basketball title are on the line this week with important games 
against Edison and Broward North. PBJC dropped to 4-5 in 
division play and 11-10 overall- with losses to Indian River and 
Broward Central and a win over Dade South last week. 

Edison visits the Pacer Gym on Wednesday, February 6 at 7:30, 
while Broward North hosts PBJC on February 8. The Pacers close 
the season with home games on February 12 and 15 against 
Dade-NWC and Broward Central. 

Despite a rally which saw the Pacers come from 18 points down 
with six minutes remaining, Broward Central pulled out an _ 88-85 
overtime victory on January 26. Forward Howard Hoskin put 
PBJC ahead by two with 45 seconds left in regulation. The 
Seahorses then tied the game and an errant Pacer shot was short 
*\t tYiG \yiizzGV 

Hoskin and Louie Fuentes led the attack with 22 points each 
while point guard Dennis Graham added 19 and Center Jeff 
Washington 16. Weldon Pope's 20 points, all from the field, led 

The all-round play of rapidly developing Dennis Graham, and 
his four clutch free throws in the final minute led PBJC to a 71-69 
home win against Miami-Dade South on January 28. Graham 
totaled 10 points, but more importantly had 16 assists, while 
guard Bob Webster led the scoring with 20 points. Washington 
added 15 and Fuentes 9. 

In a heartbreaker which lasted three overtimes, guard Amp 
Bush scored 24 points including six in the third overtime, to lead 
Indian River to a 97-93 win on January 30. The Pacers led with 11 
seconds remaining but Pioneer guard Donnell Williams' jumper 
with five seconds left sent the game into the first overtime. 
Graham continued his torrid pace with 25 points, while 
Washington added 18 and Hoskins and Fuentes had 16 each. 

To each person is given some measure 
of faith.

of was pitcher Vida Blue. Blue 
became furious. The Giant 
pitcher at the time had a 10-10 
record and a 5.17 ERA. Blue 
later vowed that he would no 
longer grant interviews the 
remainder of the season. He 
later threatened to "blow 
away' ' all reporters. 

Because of the Blue 
incident, Schwarz wrote a 
diary account of a plane trip by 
the Giants. Schwarz wrote of a 
drinking incident and a fight 
between the manager and the 
players on the plane. 

After a game, the players 
noticed Schwarz. Many Giant 
players got their dander up. 
Pitchei John Montefusco was 
yelling at all reporters over the 
drinking fines assesed to the 
players. During the fracas, 
Blue threatened to hit another 
reporter over the head with a 
chair. After the turmoil in the 
clubhouse, security guards 
were being put in the 
Candelstick Park pressbox. 

A fight between New 
England Patriot cornerback 
Ray Clayborn and Boston 
Globe sportswriter Will 
McDonough surfaced after a 
Patriot victory. McDonough 
had written an article of 
Clayborn 's earlier problems 
with team management and 
the piess Clayborn noticed 
McDonough in the Patriots 
locker room and stuck a finger 
in the writers eye. 
McDonough took exception 
and punched Clayborn in the 
face and knocked him to the 

McDonough plans a lawsuit 
against Clayborn and the 
Patriots. The Patriot 
organization said and did 
nothing about the incident. 

Trouble had been* brewing 
all seaspn long. It involved 
Houston Post sportswriter 
Dale Robertson and Houston 
Oiler quarterback Dan 
Pastonni. Pastorini had taken 
exception to several stories 
written by Robertsonduringthe 

season. The Oiler player 
refused to speak to Robertson. 

Robertson later borrowed a 
note from a radio reporter's 
tape for a story. Pastorini said 
that he did not want to be 
quoted by Robertson, even 
through a third party. After 
the two had met during a 
pre-playoff game press 
onfeiencc, an altercation 
occured in which Pastorini 
threw Robertson to the 

Players have even taken 
exception to fans that boo. 
Players such as Georee 
Hcndrick, Steve Carlton and 
Gene Tenace refuse to grant 
fans autographs. 

Like any job in today's 
world, you have to take the 
good with the bad. That is the 
difference between the Duane 
Thomas' and the Roger 
Staubach's, one handles the 
pressure poorly and the other 
handles it well. Maybe that is 
why Roger Staubach is looked 
upon as a real piofessional.

Out of the mouths of athletes comes . 

by Jim Hayward 

Someone once said, "Kids 
say the darndest things," 
however, it's a good bet that, 
that person never listened 
closely to the constant babble 
in the world of sports. Starting 
this week as a continuing 
feature is a collection of some 
of the more humorous, ironic, 
and sarcastic quotations of 
today's athletes, coaches and 
owners. Enjoy. 

George Steinbrenner, owner 
of the New York Yankees: "I 
don't agree with free 

"1 spent 12 years training 
for a career that was over in a 
week. Joe Namath spent a 
week training for a career that 
lasted 12 years. "-Olympic 
decathlon champion and 
television commentator Bruce 

Backboard destroyer Darryl 
"Chocolate Thunder" 
Dawkins: "Nothing means 

nothing, but ain't really 
nothing, because nothing is 
something that isn't. " 

Dr. Ferdie Pacheco, ring 
physician, on the sale of video 
cassettes showing both Ali- 
Spinks fights for S89.95: 
"Hell, for that money, Spinks 
will come to your house. ' ' 

"1 have the heart of a 
racehorse trapped inside the 
body of a jackass," - Tracy 
Steele, who has lost six of his 
nine pro fights, but is not 
giving up. 

Reggie Jackson, explaining 
why a few small groups of 
Yankee Stadium fans don't 
boo him: ' 'All the fans in those 
sections are black, under 10, 
and don't read the papers. ' ' 

Herman "Jackrabbit" 
Smitfr-Johannsen, 103-year- 
old cross-country skier, on the 
scret of long life: "Stay busy, 
get plenty of exercise and 
don't drink too much. Then 
again, don't drink too little." 

George Danielson, chair- 
man of the House sub- 
committee studying the 
amateur sports act of 1978, 
when told about the Olympic 
sport of luge: ' ' I thought it was 
something to eat." 

Father Vaughan Quinn, 
goalie for a winning all-priest 
hockey team in Michigan: 
"We cheat like hell." 

"The Russians have a 
weapon that can wipe out 280 
million Americans. That puts 
them exactly 10 years behind 
Howard Cosell." - columnist 
Red Smith. 

Jack McClosky, Indiana 
Pacer assistant coach, after 
the NBA team released Ann 
Meyers - "She gave me a little 
peck on the cheek and a hug. It 
meant alot to me. I've never 
gotten a kiss from a player 
who got cut."

Intramural basketball starts 

by Bill Meeks 

The men's intramural 
basketball league is in full 
swing after the first week of 
play. On Monday, the 
Playboys downed the No- 
Names 66-34 in the opening 
game for both teams. The 
Funk-A-Delics beat the R-B 
Boys 59-44. The Young & 
Restless bombed the 
BeachComber Bombers 68-30. 
Wednesday, the bombers lost 
to the R-B Boys 50-34. 

In the Bombers first game, 
they were plagued by fouls 
and mistakes but hung in 

there and battled as best as 
they could against the taller 
and faster Young & Restless 

Leading the Young & 
Restless in scoring were 
George O'Jea, Oscar Braff, 
and Mike Carter with 14 points 
each. The Bombers were 
paced by Ross Sanders with 10 
points and Scott Greenberg 
with 8. Don Childs, Jack 
Privetera, Wallace Dill and 
Bill Branca rounded out the 
rest of the Bomber scoring. 

In a tough, physical and 

foul-marred contest, the R-B 
Boys downed the Bombers 
50-34. It was a close game up 
until the middle of the first 
half when Ed Moss started a 
spree in which he burned the 
bucket for 20 points. Fast 
breaks and untimely fouls 
followed by missed scoring 
opportunities led to the 
Bombers downfall. The R-B 
Boys scoring went as follows: 
Moss 20 points, Frank 
Sulkowski 14, Ira Hubschman 
10, and Joe Simpson 6. The 
Bombers were led by Scott 
Greenberg's 10 points. 

Roundball Roundup 

by Jim Hayward 

The 1979-80 Pacer Basket- 
ball season has been one of 
ups and downs, exciting 
moments and tough games. 
Here's a look at the men who 
were responsible for the 
success (and failures), and 
memories of this season: 

Howard Hoskin, 6-7 
sophomore forward. The 
team's leading scorer and key 
returning veteran has not 
slowed down on bit. Makes up 
for lack of outside shot with 
tough inside game and 
quickness. Should move on to 
a major college next year. 

Luis Fuentes, 6-6 freshman 
forward. The former all-area 
standout from Lake Worth 
High has been a pleasant 
surprise for Coach Joe 
Ceravolo this season. Has a 
nice shooting touch for a big 
man. Has fully recovered from 
various knee injuries and still 
wears a heavy brace, Also a 
major college prospect. 

Jeff Washington, 6-8, 245 
freshman center. A West 
Unseld type who plays like 

Wes one night and Henry 
Finkel the next. Has shown 
flashes of brilliance. Went to 
same high school as Hoskin in 
St. Louis. 

Dennis Graham, 5-9 
freshman guard. This Brooklyn 
product has stepped in and 
taken over as point guard after 
Greg Jackson's absense. 
Sometimes plays out of control 
but has speed to burn . 

Bob Webster, 6-5 
sophomore guard. PBJC's 
other returning starter along 
with Hoskin. Another streaky 
player who is finally starting to 
have more good nights than 
bad. Played high school ball at 
Coral Springs H.S. 

Roger Williams, 6-3 
sophomore forward. Not much 
of a shooter, defense and 
dunking are his forte'. Has 
experience but doesn't always 
show it. Another out of state 
product from Philadelphia. 

Jimmy Castle, 5-11 fresh- 
man guard. After being the 
number two ball handler at 
Leonard High for two years, 

came to PBJC and became 
Greg Jackson's backup. Was 
thrust into the starting lineup 
when Jackson and Graham 
became ineligible and did a 
fine job. Now Graham's back 
and Castle's number two 

Paul Matton, 6-6 freshman 
center. Came a long way to 
play ball. The number two 
pivotman hails from Montreal, 
Canada. Does his best when 
called upon but is not starting 

Ben Bryant, 6-3 freshman 
forward. From a long line of 
JUCO prospects of Atlantic 
High School. Has a way to go 
but could develop into a fine 

Ray Vincelette, 6-4 
sophomore forward. Seems to 
have been around longer than 
Coach Ceravolo. There must 
be a nice soft seat on the end 
of the bench, because he never 
leaves there. But seriously, 
plays his role, contributes to 
the team and never complains. 
More players should have his

When you're thinking about college 
you've got to be thinking about money. 
Lots of money these days. College is 
also a good reason to think about the 
Army. Yes, the Army. The Army's 
Educational Assistance Program is 
available not only for 3 and 4 year 
enlistments, but now in special career 
fields you can do it in two. You can 
accumulate well over $7,000 for college 
in that short time. Ask your Army 
Recruiter for the details.

Rack the Ripper 
Runs rampant 

Social Science, Business Adminis- 
tration, Humanities... and so the list 
goes on. There should be a total of 22 
Beachcomber circulation racks 
throughout the campus, but over the 
course of the last couple of weeks, 
these racks have unexpectedly 
disappeared with the aid of an 
unknown source. 

Who is this ripper of the racks, or 
whom Beachcomber personal have 
labeled as "Rack the Ripper"? We 
have no clues as to the whearabouts of 
the thief- the crook who has robbed us 
of our sole means of distribution. 

The Beachcomber pleads with the 
criminal to return the stands 
immediately. Our publication will not 
make a big issue out of this - we will not 

Does the offender have a grievance 
with the Beachcomber? Then all we ask 
is that we sit down and negotiate this 
fairly and squarely. 

Either the accused loves our paper so 
much that not only does he take 
hundreds of copies, he takes the rack to 
accompany them. Or, the Beachcomber 
isn't well thought of, and in order to 
insure the absence of the newspapers 
kidnaps the racks. 

The stands are the property of the 
Beachcomber, and we request that they 
not be moved unless special permission 
has been given. 

To "Rack the Ripper" • whoever he 
may be, we pray that you will have a 
kind heart and will return the stolen

Dear Editors: 

I read with interest the two unsigned letters 
that were printed in the February 4, 1980 
Beachcomber. I certainly understand the 
students being concerned over losing time 
allocated for their education: however, I submit 
to you that there probably would have been 
many more letters to the editor if the students 
were not informed about the opportunity they 
have to gain $8,000,000 for improvement of 
their facilities (that they have been complaining 

It is our desire to keep our students informed 
to the best of our ability, and there isn't any 
formula or procedure that would allow some of 
our over 10,000 students to see the program but 
one time. I make no apologies for keeping our 
students informed on a matter so critical to their 
educational pursuits. 

With this money, labs will be renovated, our 
auditorium will be properly equipped, the 
dental hygiene lab " will receive up-to-date 
facilities, etc. There are over ten typewritten 
paees, of maintenance, renovation, and 
equipment needs which will, if the millage 
'•Kisses, be improved. 


suit and then asking them 
"does it show?", he had them 
all fooled. They weren't on to a 
minute of it. 

But then they tripped him 
up, and starting telling 
everyone in Washington the 
story of Kelly and the cash. So 
what was the old boy to do but 
give back the cash-all but 
about $175 for lunch-and start 
telling about his own private 
investigation? That's what he 

If that's what was going on, 
then why is it that Kelly has 
refused to take a lie detector 
test? "I don't trust them," he 
said, and he hopes people will 
take him at his word. Well, it 
has been said that lie detector 
tests are not conclusive 

Kelly has made some 
interesting points about the 
FBI's investigation. He said, 
"it was the clearest kind of 
entrapment that could be. " 

Good for him! 

The FBI posed themselves 
as Arab oil shiek(s) out to get 

special favors from Congress- 
men in exchange for big 
money. They used all kinds of J 
gimmicks, including 
expensive penthouse hotel ; 
suites and more than j 
$500,000. They succeeded in j 
causing another scandal to j 
expose several Congressmen i 
as greedy and eager when il | 
comes to the almighty dollar. 

So what? Now that we have I 
this crossfire of stories, what's 
going to be done about it? Is it j 
Kelly and the other congress- ' 
men who are going to prove j 
the FBI is so low that it will j 
stoop to tactics of entrapment, 
or is it the FBI that will sIkm I 
that Congressmen are subject 
to weakness under pressure 
from the dollar being waved to j 
their faces? 

Whatever the outcome.! 
until we see it, it seems! 
righteous that we should all!

attempting to reorganize after 
a semester of inactivity. 

The new state of officers 
includes Phyllis Williams as 
president. Randy Odoms, vice 

president; Elizabeth Taylor, 
secretary; and Sharon Scot, 

Increasing human aware- 
ness will be the focus of the 
BSU as it seeks to build its 
membership and commemo-

Later this semester, the 
organization plans to partici- 

pate in a Radio-A-Thon which 
will be held to benefit the 
Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation 
of Palm Beach County. 

Membership in the BSU is 
open to all students who show 
an interest.

Activity Lounge. 

Issues with Ed 

by Bill Meredith 

"Wednesday with Ed", the semi- weekly 
event which inspired both positive and negative 
responses last semester, was continued in the 
present term on Wednesday, Feb. 6. 

PBJC President, Dr. Edward M. Eissey, 
along with Dean Robert Moss and Director of 
Financial Aid Hammid Facquire, were asked 
questions regarding classes, work-study 
programs, the millage presentations, 
attendance, and the racquetball courts. 

Despite a small turnout (mostly Beachcomber 
staff), Dr. Eissey and his cohorts helped clear 
up a few vauge issues. 

The work-study program was the main topic. 
Asked if funds had been cut, Mr. Facquire 
answered, "Yes, there is a shortage of funds 
this semester. You've got to apply ahead of 
time, for the pot is running dry now." He added 
that the rise in minimum wage also made a cut, 
and that 117 students were registered this 
semester as compared to last semester's 23. 

"Regarding' the ' millage presentation, Dr. 
Eissey commented that the presentations "are 
for the students," and they should not complain 
about having to see the slide presentation more 
than once. "I see it five to seven times a day," 
he pointed our. Eissey also added the fact that a 
total of nine months preparation went into the 
millage proposal. 

On the attendance policy, Dean Moss said 
that the students had given "poor response" to 
questionaires mailed out to "wx'ed" students 
over the holidays and no decision as to the 
future of the policy has been made. 

Student Mike McGirt inquired about the 
presence of outsiders at the racquetball courts, 
and Eissey answered that we have a sign, but 
nobody is following it. 

"We have been criticized in the past for lack 
of communication," Eissey said. "We are 
trying to curb that criticism, " he concluded. The 
critics might be more justified if they would 
show up on Wednesdays.

"Twenty-f if th century" not 
Far enough away 


by Angee Morris 
Staff Writer 

Television Review: Buck Rogers in 
the 25th Century - In order to raise 
itself from the number three spot in the 
ratings game, NBC is offering TV 
viewers several new shows, one of 
which is Buck Rogers in the 25th 
Century. It is unimaginable how this 
show ever got on the air. The NBC 
peacock should hang its proud head in 
shame. And Fred Silverman, NBC's 
programming director, should hang 

This program is a slap in the face of 
every woman, girl, or transvestite! The 
character Buck Rogers (played by Gil 
Gerard) is a nauseating overabundance 
of pesudo-machoism. The plots are the 
same each week; only the names are 
changed to disguise the guilty. It seems 
that each week some hard-hearted 
woman on another planet creates a 
calamity that puts the whole galaxy in 
peril. It is then left to Buck, that 
self-proclaimed intergalactic stud, to 
woo the antagonist, make a few clever 
remarks, and save the world. Gosh! 
What a nice guy. It (the plot) seems so 
simple, and indeed so do the writers. 
One wonders whether the writers 
realize the derogatory light in which 
this show views women. If the female 
portion of the cast is not parading 
around in skimpy costumes, they with 

their tiny minds and short foresight ar, 
wreaking havoc on the rest 
civilization. The program implies th; 
women should not turn their attention 
to anything more important tha; 
amusing men with their physiet 

Aside from the rest, this show has! 
great prospect of being comical, atnh 
possibly could be except that Gem. 
pumps every bit of irritatid 
self-assured, cocky arrogance he a*j 
into the character. The worst part of/ 
all is that Gerard appears to belia 
everything the scripts say about Biuk' 
"manliness". This would not be q«r 
so hard to take if even an ounce oft] 
were true. As it is, Gerard is n[ 
pleasure to look at. 

Not only are the plots terrible, iL 
scripts bad, and the dialogue wors, 
but the special effects are (to be KxL 
laughable. If it is still a mystery toWf 
Silverman why NBC's ratings s f * 
further downward each week, perh3;j; 
viewing this show could give liimf 

In closing, let it be known that tt 
writer would rather submit to 
labotomy than to be subjected f 
another episode of this mindless driv.-l

they may well be one and the same. I

Love In Big Windows 

In fiont of big windows 
Where everyone sees. 
Some people make out 
And do as they please. 

They pet and they pamper, 
Each othei galore. 
They fiddle and fondle. 
Make out on the floor 

They hang on each other, 
And nibble their ears. 
They fickle and giggle, 
And pinch at their rears. 

What pushes these people? 
What makes them so lazy? 
Do they have any morals? 
Or aie they just crazy? 

Please have some feelings 
For those who can't stand it, 
Go in the bathroom 
If you can't command it! 

So all of you people 

With lots of play in your hears, 

Love in big windows 

Is not very smart!! 1

Aerosmith express keeps a rollin' 

by Bill Meredith 

I must admit, I was a bit skeptical 
before this, my third Aerosmith 
concert. Last April in Orlando I saw 
them put on a great show, but now they 
were minus their lead guitarist and 
songwtiter Joe Perry, who left the 
group on the heels of a new album not 
six weeks ago. No way they could be 
ready, I thought. No way... 

But the boys from Boston were ready 
indeed, although the opening numbers 
didn't indicate it. The band slogged 
through "Back in the Saddle" and 
"Mama Kin" much like they did for 
nearly the entire '78 Hollywood 

It was not until "Big Ten Inch 
Record" that they hit a peak which they 
retained for the rest of the show. Lead 
singer Steven Tyler danced," shreiked, 
and flipped harmonicas to the audience 
after some fine soloing. Rhythm 
guitatist Brad Whitford took some good 
licks on "Rats in the Cellar", and 
Perry's replacement, New Yorker 
Jimmy Crespo, finally got on track with 
some resounding talk-box guitar on 
"Walk this Way", a real crowd 

"Dream On" then mesmerized the 
young ladies, one in particular. As 
Tyler reached down to shake a few 
hands in the first row, he noticed that 
one refused to let him go. Realizing 
that he would be late for a lyric line, he 
used his only alternative and pulled the 
unrelenting woman up on stage with 
him. She was quickly removed by the 
road crew" and the incident remained 
minor - especially when you consider 
that Tyler is used to dodging bottles 
and firecrackers. Dodging women must 
be a luxury. 

Aerosmith finally got around to some 
new material from their fine "Night in 
the Ruts" LP, slashing our "Three 
Mile Smile", "Reefer Headed 
Women", and "Bone to Bone" all in a 

Next came "Lord of the Thighs", 
one of the boy's best live jams. Bassist 
Tom Hamilton and guitarist Whitford 
controlled the rhythm and traded off 
licks thioughout. "(Remember) Walking 

in the Sand", also from the "Ruts" 
album, was a pleasant surprise in 
concert, and was also where Tyler got 
into more trouble. 

As he leaned his microphone stand 
down to let the crowd help sing the 
chorus, a few fans decided they wanted 
to hold the mike. They finally 
succeeded in pulling it from his hands, 
but it was soon rescued and Tyler was 
supplied with a new one. He had a few 

choice words for the rowdy bunch, but 
otherwise seem unnerved. 

"Same Old Song and Dance" and 
"Milk Cow Blues" may have been the 
show's finest numbers. Drummer Joey 
Kramer ended the latter with a brief 
solo, and with a resounding crash 
opened "Toys in the Attic", ending the 
show with a bang. 

A well-deserved encore followed, 
with Aerosmith performing their best 
cover cuts - 'the Beatles' "Come 
Together" and the Yardbird's "Train 
Kept a Rollin'". 

I could also say quite a lot about 
opening act Mother's Finest, but not 
everyone has heard of them. If you 
haven't, you certainly may in the 

Mother's Finest is a racially mixed 
group from Georgia, and probably 
plays the best driving funk-rock you 
could ever hear. 

The band ^evolves around bassist 
Wizzard, drummer B.B. Queen, and 
guitarist Moses Mo. Singers Joyce 
Kennedy and Glenn Murdock add good 
looks and stage presence to their fine 
vocals, and Mike does an adequate job 
on the keyboards. 

Highlites of the 45 minute set 
included "Rain", B.B.'s drum solo, 
and the Jefferson Starship's "Some- 
body to Love", along with an original 
array of jumps, falls, and stage 

Overall, quite a good show. 
Aerosmith, and especially newcomer 
Jimmy Crespo, proved that there is life 
after Joe Perry - at least on stage. But 
the real challenge will lie in the next 
studio album. Crespo has proven he 
can play Perry's leads, but whether he 
can write his own and still remain in the 
Aerosmith style remains to be seen. 

Heart Beat - Pulse of a generation 

It was post-war America - a 
time of short hair, 
McCarthyism, bobby soxers 
and 3-D glasses. Rock n' roll 
was just a kid plucking chords 
in Texas. A joint was still a 
knee or an elbow. The big 
question in the American 
backyaid was whether to 
barbecue or build a bomb 

Neal Cassady was an ex-con 
with a lusty sexual appetite 
and a total disregard for 
society's ground rules when 
he met the shy, struggling 
Jack Kerouac in New York in 
the late 1940's. They were 
among what Kerouac called a 
"generation of furtives," who 
shared a disdain for "all the 
forms, all the conventions of 
the world." 

He would someday define 
that spirit in a single word, 
"beat," which would label a 
lifestyle, then be perverted 
into a caricature of Kerouac's 
meaning. {As Kerouac himself 
would be.) 

But at the time, there were 
no labels, just a mutual 
attraction betwen two people 
who found in each other what 
they found missing in 
themselves. Cassady lived the 
way Kerouac longed to write. 
Kerouac's words echoed 
Cassady's free spirit. 

Setting out across the 
country - by thumb and car - 
their adventures became the 
basis for Kerouac's "On The 
Road." It may be apocryphal 
that the book, described by 
one critic as "the longest 


Box 218 

Agoura.Ca. 91301 

sentence in the English 
language," was compulsively 
typed on a roll of toilet tissue. 
But there was never any 
question that its hero, Dean 
Moriatty, was Neal Cassady. 

"The only people for me are 
the mad ones, the ones who 
are mad to live, mad to talk, 
and mad to be saved... the 
ones who never yawn or say a 
comonplace thing, but burn, 
burn, burn, like fabulous 
yellow Roman candles 
exploding across the stars." 
Kerouac wrote of Cassady in 
"On The Road." 

During their travels, the two 
friends met and fell in love 
with art student Carolyn 
Robinson, a product of an 
ultra-conservative southern 
family and an ultra-liberal arts 
education at Bennington 
College, Vermont. Cassady 
married her. Kerouac stayed 
on the road, as a lettuce 
picker, handyman, merchant 
seaman and novelist whose 
forwarded mail was still 
comprised mostly of rejection 

By the time they came 
together again in San 
Francisco, eight years later, 
Neal Cassady was" choking on 
the American dream. Carolyn 
was trying despeiately to cope 
with her husband's* pinball 
bounces between booze and 
domesticity And Kerouac was 
still an unpublished author. 

Keiouac moved into the 
tract house where the 
- Cassadys lived with their thiee 
children, about as close as 
the\ could come to the 
icquisite 3.2. And the two 
fiiends, who'd shared virtually 
everything else, now shared 
the same woman. 

"I don't think we did 
anything wrong," Carolyn 
Cassady would later remark 
"We just did it first." 

"You don't know how far 
ahead of their time these 
people were unless you see 
them in that time. It was only 
twenty-five years ago that the 
Cassadys and Kerouac set-up 
light housekeeping in 
suburbia, but in teims of the 
social upheaval that's 
happened since, it might have 
been the stone age," 
commented John Byrum, 

"Some people still believe 
that the Beats were radical 



revolutionaries who wanted to 
tear down the towers of the 
establishment. Nothing could 
be further from the truth. ' ' 

He recalled Kerouac's reply 
when an interviewer asked 
him was the Beats were 
"leally against...?" 

Keiouac said he couldn't 
answer the question because 
the only thing that mattered 
was what he was for. "We 
love everything -- Billy 
Graham, Rock 'n' roll, Zen, 
apple pie, Eisenhower - we 
dig it all," he went on. "This 
is Beat. Live your lives out? 
Naw, LOVE your lives out."

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, the fantasy 
adventure game that has become a national 
addiction and has recently been featured in such 
publications as Newsweek, Us, The New York 
Times and The Los Angeles Times, will be 
distributed to the book trade by Random House, 
effective January 1 . 

Called "the most popular fantasy game of the 
decade" by Games Magazine, DUNGEONS & 
DRAGONS has no board, no cards, no play 
money, and no winners and losers. It is a game 
of the imagination in which players assume 
mythical characters and, with the guidance of a 
"Dungeon Master" - an expreienced player 
who sets the scene and plots the details of the 
game - embark upon a dangerous quest which 
can involve dungeons, monsters, hidden 
treasure and obstacles whose limits are 
boundless since they originate in the minds of 

the players themselves. 

The game was created in 1974 by Gary Gygax, 
a game enthusiast who had long been fascinated 
by fairy tales and medieval romance. Gygax 
estimates that "D&D," as it is popularly 
known, now has 500,000 players in this country 
and 100,000 overseas. It is most popular with 
college students and teenagers, and appeals 
especially to fans of Tolkien's Middle Earth, 
sci-fi enthusiasts, computer science students 
and all those who love games of strategy. 

Random House will distribute the D&D Basic 
Set, which includes instructions, dice and 
adventure module ($10.00), the Advanced D&D 
Player Handbook ($12.00), the Advanced D&D 
Monster Manual ($12.00), the Advanced D&D 
Dungeon Master's Guide ($15.00), and 9 
advanced adventure modules, which range in 
price from $4.50 to $6.00.

Monday, February 11, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 7 

Beachcomber// Sports 

Sports Editorial 
Sports isn't really such a bargain 

Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn has been 
saying for years thai baseball is the biggest 
entertainment value in sports today. There is 
now evidence to back up his comments, but it is 
quite narrow. 

Including increases by respective teams, 
average prices for tickets to see a baseball game 
is $4.35. The average price in the National 
Football League is S9.75, the National Hockey 
League 38.90 and the National Basketball 
Association $6.25. While some teams have 
declined to increase ticket prices, other teams 
have increased their prices upward to $3 per 

Of course, for what you are paying in ticket 
prices to attend a sporting event, it is a bargain. 
There is, however, a big opening in what they 
are telling us on prices They fail to mention all 
the other "extra's" that a person pays every 
time they attend a game. 

For an example, let us use a family of four 
attending a sporting event. Prices do vary in all 
stadiums for their prices, so an average amount 
will be used. Besides paying ticket prices, a 
gamily must pay for gasoline to get to the event. 
An average drive would be about an hour each 
way, so $2.50 will suffice. When arriving at the 
stadium the family must park, and of course 
there are no free spots. Prices for parking varies 
from S3-S5, so an average price in $4. The total 
to just arrive is $6.50. 

Since fans entering a stadium are not allowed 
to bring bottles and cans they 
must pay for all food in the stadium. In a family 
of four, (two parents and two kids) let us say 
they have the following: two ice Creams at fifty 
cents each; two beers at one dollar each; six hot 
dogs at seventy-five cents each; six sodas, at 
sixty cents each; four peanuts, pretzels or 
popcorn at fifty cents each. From food alone, a 
family will spend thirteen dollars and ten cents. 

A kid can not go home without a team 
souvenir now, can he? The most popular of the 
souvenirs are the yearbooks for $2.50 each, 
pennants for $1.50 each, picture buttons at $1 
each, hats for $5 each and programs for $1 each. 
An average family will spend $9 for souvenirs. 

It's time to add up this "bargain". The cost 
for a family of four to see a major league 
baseball game is $46; a hockey game will cost 
$64; a professional basketball game is $54; at a 
football game it will cost $68. 

After the fans realize how much they end up 
spending to see one game, sports on television, 
especially cable, will be the lone dependant. 
How much longer can the fans take the 
responsibility for paying solely for the player's 
million dollar contracts? When a team owner 
makes millions, he'll look at us poor 
pick-pocketed fans and say, "Thanks Mac." 

Lady Pacers set to throw out first hall 

by Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

While students have been 
getting ready for homecoming 
and it's festivities, there has 
been another group preparing 
for something else happening 
this week. The '80 edition of 
the Pacer Softball team has 
been getting ready for their 
opening game against 
Broward Central on 
Wednesday at 3 p.m. 

Coaches Anderson and 
Whittesley have been working 
the players hard, getting them 
ready. The Beachcomber 
spoke with Coach Anderson 
about his team. When asked 
how this team compared with 
last year's he had these 
comments, "This years team 
is bigger and has more of an 
offensive power than last 
year's group, but they don't 
have the speed of last year's 

Anderson feels that his 
defense is okay. There is no 
exhibition season for the lady 
Pacers this season. "The girls 
haven't played together as a 
team yet so he'll have to wait 
and see. Because of his 
players larger size and lack of 
speed. Coach Anderson feels 
that he'll have to rely on hits 

When asked about what 
players to look for both 
offensively and defensively, 
he said, "If Carolyn Cowden is 
hitting well and we play good 
defense behind Treva 
Thompson, we'll win some 
ball games." Anderson said 
that his only weak spot is in 
centerfield. He is shifting 
players in the outfield. 
Anderson feels that right 
fielder Pat Di Menna, w ho is 
fast and has a good arm, and 
second year player LisaTurdo, 

another speedster in short- 
field, should take up the slack 
in center. 

The Pacers play a tough 
schedule with eight teams in 
their division. When asked 
about his bench strength he 
replied, "The team had good 
speed but no experience. ' ' 

The Beachcomber asked 
rightfielder Pat Di Menna her 
views about this square and 
she replied, "On offense and 
defense, we've been working 
hard using different people in 
and out; but of the two, our 
defense is stronger." 

When asked about the split 
coaching technique of 

infielders together and out- 
fielders together, Di Menna 
liked it because there was 
more individual attention 
given to the players. Di Menna 
feels that the Pacers have a 
good bench to rely on and that 
they are working on speed on 
the base paths. 

The Lady Pacers play a 54 
game schedule this year. They 
play Broward Centrals' Sea- 
horses on Wednesday, 
February 13 and play again on 
Tuesday the 19th against the 
Broward North Trotters, both 
tough conference opponents. 
Come out and support our 
Lady Pacers when they play. 

Coach Anderson gives workout on infield play.

Alumni Benefit set 

by Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC baseball team 
which posted a 53-13 record 
last year and a 9-2 exhibition 
this season, starts a series of 
home games on the 6th, 9th, 
Wth, and 14th against Ft. 
Lauderdale, Florida Southern 
and F.I.U. , respectively. 

The Pacers are playing a 
benefit game for the American 
Cancer Society on February 13 
against Pacer Alumni Baseball 
players. Tickets are SI for 
students and $2 for adults. 

Such players as Ross 
Baumgarten of Chicago White 
Sox;, Andy McGaffigan of the 
Yankees; Bob Benda of 
Detroit; Glen Rogers, Tommy 
Howser and Scott Benedict all 
of the Yankees; Dan Weppner 
of the Red Sox, and Greg Dahl 
of Houston will attend. 

On' Feb. 15 at the Jupiter 
Hilton, there will be a benefit 
dinner for the Pacers. 
Speakers scheduled are 
managers Dick Howser of the 
Yankees and Bobby Cox of the 
Atlanta Braves. The cost is $50 
and is tax-deductible. 

Some of the current Pacer 
players have caught the eyes 
of the pro scouts this season, 
and hopefully more players 
will later. The following 
are the players and the teams 
who have chose them: Ranuy 

O'Neal by the Milwaukee 
Brewers; Jeff Etwell by the 
Houston Astros; Rick Moreyer 
by the Minnesota Twins; Eric 
Call by the Atlanta Braves; 
and Gus and Gerome Burgess 
by the Boston Red Sox. 

Coach Dusty Rhodes feels 
that it will be a long baseball 
season in that Division 4 has 
the most teams (7) and that all 
teams in the division have 
good chances to win. Rhodes 
commented that, "1 hope to 
have a good season, because 
the players are working hard 
and they can do the job and 

The feelings of Rhodes were 
further brought out by player 
Nelson Rood of Jupiter. The 
shortstop-second baseman 
feels that he and the rest of the 
team have worked hard in 
preparing for the season. The 
Pacers' division in the last few 
years has produced state 
champions in Junior College 
competition. Nelson feels that 
the Pacers have a good chance 
in the playoffs, but they'll 
have to be tough and beat the 
other teams in their division. 

The Pacers play a 66 game 
schedule with many home 
games at Bill Adeimy Field. 
All games are free for 
students, faculty and the 


The middle half of our 
Twentieth Century has been 
ailed "The Do-lt- Yourself 
Era." And justifiably so. 
Americans living in the first 
half of this Century used their 
energies to recover from the 
Spanish-American War, 
World War I, the Great 
Depression only to be thrust 
into World War II. 

Americans rallied to serve 
in Twentieth Century wars 
because they believed in 
Human Rights for all people. 

Judaeo-Christian faith and 
teachings support the integrity 
of the individual and the 
inherent right for self- 
improvement. Consider 
Creation: God announced, 
"Everything is very good; Let 
each reproduce after its own 
kind. Rule over the earth." 

God designed and perfected 
inherent, interacting laws for 

each created specimen. He 
knows exactly what is best for 
each thing. He knows 
specifically what will produce 
maximum joy and satisfaction 
for each person. 

With interbreeding activity- 
-as a "kind"~God specifies 
reproductive laws genetically. 
But at the same time, the 
Creator insisted upon "each" 
and "its own" for personal 
uniqueness. Building upon 
individual uniqueness is a 
personal responsibility-from 
the beginning. 

Unfortunately, religious 
institutions (especially in 
Europe) assumed unto them- 
selves the prerogative • of 
dictating rights to subjects 
under their control. With the 
Inquisition and Index came 
bondage to the caprice of men 
and removal of personal 
freedoms guaranteed in 


ABOUT... 1) Who Jesus is? 

2) The Bible? 

3) Who a Christian is? 

We in the P.B.J.C. Bible Club know that Jesus is exactly who 
He said He is--the Son of God and the Son of Man (Luke 1, 2). 
We also believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God written 
under the inspiration of His Holy Spirit to believing men who 
were obedient to the Spirit V Caching. 

We believe it takes more lan just going to Church on Sunday 
(and even if you include Wednesday) to be a Christian. First of 
all, it means accepting Jesus Christ as personal Saviour from 
sin--that response to God's love Gift makes you a Christian. But 
then you must let Jesus be Lord of your life, let Him have 
control of your thoughts and body that you might become the 
best possible person (John 3:3, 16; Romans 10:9,10)

It's Spring again 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

With football season ending, basketball and 
hockey still underway and spring still more than 
a month away, it is baseball season again. 

It seems like yesterday when Willie Stargell 
belted a Scott McGregor pitch for a home-run to 
seal the championship for the Pittsburgh 

Tliis week the New York Yankees will open 
their spring camp; other teams will later follow. 

Every week for the next four weeks, each 
division will be analyzed and will be predicted. 
This week it is the National League West. 

1) Los Angeles Dodgers - After a disapointing 
season in 1979, due to injuries and off years to 
certain players, things look back to normal for 
the L.A. Blue. ' 

Off season free-agent pick-ups of Don 
Stanhouse and Dave Goltz will help an injury 
riddled pitching staff. Last season, the Dodgers 
had Terry Forster, Doug Rau, Reggie Smith, 
and Rick Monday out for a large part of the 
campaign. Look for a strong year from the 
Dodgers if there are no big injuries, the Dodgers 
bench is quite weak. 

2) Houston Astros - After a season in which 
the entire team hit less home runs combined 
than Dave Kingman alone; a powerless year is 
once again expected. ' 

The old saying "good pitching beats good 
hitting" certainly held true last year for the 
Astros, but will it again? With a pitching staff of 
newly acquired Nolan Ryan, holdouts Joe 
Niekro, Joe Sambito and J. R. Richard, it is 
considered the best in the majors. 

If Joe Morgan can come back from two off 
seasons, the Astros will be in it till the end. 

3) San Diego Padres - This may Finally be the 
year. With maturing youngsters like Bob 
Owinchinko and veterans such as Dave Winfield 
and Gaylord Perry, the Padres will stay in the 
race. The acquisition of Dave Cash and Aurelio 
Rodriguez will shore up the San Diego infield, 
Owner Ray Kroc has vowed that he will spend to 
bring a championship to San Diego; he may 
have finally done it. 

4) San Francisco Giants - Inner turmoil and 
injuries riddled the once powerful Giants in the 
1979 season. Off years from pitchers John 
Montefusco, Vida Blue and Ed Halicki 
plummetted the Giants to the bottom of their 
respective division. 

Newly acquired free-agents Rennie Stennett, 
Jim Wohlford and Milt May will help, but the 
Giants only have second division players. 

5) Cincinnati Reds - The dynasty is over. Pete 
Rose is gone, Tony Perez is gone and Don 
Gullett is gone. Now Fred Norman and Joe 
Morgan have left. The Reds still do have some 
quality players, but they are entering their final 
years (Johnny Bench). The Reds do have quality 
newcomers, but it will take a few years for them 
to be a real contending team. 

6) Atlanta Braves - This may be the year for 
the Braves. Oh, not to win the division, but to 
finally get out of the cellar. With new first 
baseman Chris Chambliss and old timer Piiil 
Niekro lending their experience to youngsters 
such as future superstar Bob Horner, it's 
nowhere but up. 



Believers have absolulc 
freedu'H uf choice and freedom 
of will even after accepting 
God's salvation. In fact, 
Salvation provides power from 
God to live abundantly. 
Scriptures only forbid anyone 
to circumscribe or infringe 
upon the rights of another 
person. Any curbs put upon a 
believer's life are only for the 
good of all-including the 
person who experiences some 


fut yourself in the place of 
/, me, or my in the 
next paragraph. 

My freedom does not allow 
me to ursurp rights of others. I 
am free to function joyously in 
a community where each 
person evaluates freedom of 
others when considering 
personal choices. It is not my 
prerogative to destroy the 
balance of air with poisonous 
smoke. It is not my 
prerogative to destroy 
another's body in any way. It 
is not my prerogative to 

damage the mind or soul of an 
unsuspecting child with false 
hopes or demoralizing guide- 
Unto,. I have no right to 
indoctrinate with teachings 
that violate the inherent laws 
of the body, or mind or the 
eternal soul. 

Practicing and teaching 
Human Rights has fringe 
benefits. Happiness surrounds 
anyone practicing true Human 
Rights, Quietness of mind and 
a relaxed body come from 
decisions that put God and 
others ahead of one's self. 
Practicing true Human Rights 
gives a guarantee to protection 
of self by others. Most of all, 
anyone who truly practices 
Biblical Human Rights, has 
made peace with God for 
eternity. - 

Ultimately, no one can 
destroy true Human Rights 
because the principle starts 
within the invisible spirit of a 
person and each individual 
alone reigns over the personal 
soul. You are the keeper of 
true Human Rights yourself.

Thela Kappa sponsored their 
annual Gong Show last Monday 
February H. in the PBJC 
auditorium. A below capacity audience 
gathered to watch a variety of acts 
which included musicians, dancers, 
mimes, comedians, and a magician. 

The first place $50.00 prize went to 
Sandra Alphonso, who sang "Even 
Now" by singer/songwriter Barry 
Manilow. Miss Alphonso had to 
perform her own piano accompaniment 
because her scheduled accompanist 
was absent. "I was really thrilled and 
overjoyed to have won, commented 

Ellen Jones and Terri Gosnell, "The 
Mechanical Mimes", were awarded 
the S25.00 second prize. They gave the 
audience a treat as they performed a 
mechanical dance routine to Fleetwood 
Mac's "Second Hand News." Ellen 
remarked that it was "an extraordinary 

The dancing trio J.C. Essence, 
dressed in matching costumes, 
performed "The Second Time Around" 
and won the $10.00 third prize. The' 
group also proved that they could sing. 
"It" was fun to participate, and next 
year we are going for first," challenged 

Finally, the "Most Outrageous 
Prize" went to Palsy, Walsy Alsy who 
sang "Take Back Your Minks" from 
the Brodaway hit Guys and Dolls. 
Palsy was actually dressed in a kinky 
Mink coat, pearls, and a shabby 
looking hat. He received a mixed 
chorus of laughter and screams of 
"Gong Him!" 

Judging was handled by three 
PBJC employees. Rene Khoury, 
secretary; Bob Suttle of the Business 

Department: and Kathren Woolford, 
who works' as an accountant at the

laughed one audience member. 

The money raised from the Gong 
Show will assist PTK in sending some 
of its members to the National PTK 
Convention in Washington, D.C. from 
March 20-22. 

Mr. Dan Hendrix, PTK sponsor and 
presenter of the prize money, 
commented, "The members, sponsors, 
and officers sincerely appreciate the 
particiation of ail involved in the Gong 

Some of the acts, other than winners, 
included "Dani and Her Well-Trained 
Dane." Dani's dog turned out to be not 
so "well-trained." Dani came back 
again later in the show and did a 
dramatic reading on "The Evolution of 

Another fine act was a Flamenco 
type dance by Rolando and Marian. 

Bruce Goed, who once taught disco 
lessons at PBJC. drew laughs from the 
crowd. He did imitations of Steve 
Martin. Mr. Bill, and a typical fast - 
talking TV commercial man shouting 
"Isn't That Annoying." Bruce also did 
magic tricks witli a deck of invisible 

Backstage after the show, he related, 
"People ask a lot about what I do. 
Well, 1 am known as a magician, 
comedian, actor, and a model, but I 
liked to be called an entertainer." 

PBJC student Mark Mitchell 
performed a piano piece, "Prelude in C 
Minor. Op. 28, No. 2," by F.F. Chopin. 

A total of 1 8 acts entered the show, 
but only eight escaped the ruthless rath 
of the judges.

A great deal of Americans have enough

school itge youngsters tn the LS have onlv 
limned English skills, and coincidentally. only

in E-cdeialK funded bilingual-education classes. 

These figure*, have recently inspired some

Will the levy give us students a break? 

Dear Editors: 

In response to your pleas to the student body to vole for the 
half-mil levy on March 11 , 1980, I would like to'ask you what's 
in it for the students piesently attending PBJC besides building 
improvements and equipment purchases? 

1 would like to ask if anywhere in the ten pages of proposals, a 
plan to help reduce some of the undue expenses that we the 
students are faced with ? Why must the bookstore charge such 
high prices for used books, when they buy them back for such 
law prices? Why should the students have to pay for parking? 
Why not allot some money from the half- mil levy" to parking lot 
repairs and cut out parking charges? Why must the cafeteria 
maks such a profit off the students? The dairy products are 
almost double the price of grocery stores. To pay sixty-five cents 
for yogurt is terrible. 

II the school really wants to help the students, why not reduce 
some of these expenses? Work with us and we will work with 

Sincerely yours, 

Ken. L. Foster 

Although it is definitely a possibility that the book store 
charges high prices and the cafeteria sells dairy products at 
almost double the price of those in a grocery store, it needs to be 
brought to the attention of Mr. Foster that the proposed 
half-mill levy has nothing to do with either of them. 

Both of those operations are private enterprise providing a 
service to the students, and it is no secret that they are supposed 
to be operating to make a profit. That's the way it goes. 

Now let's check into the parking lot. 


Who's Running? 

The Candidates of 1 980 


Celia Vock 


When searching through the 
GOP candidates looking for a 
strong image, one need not 
look too far before running 
into John Connally. 

He's a hard man to skip 
over, and has been involved in 
government for a long time as 
Secretary of the Navy, former 
Governor of Texas and 
Secretary of the Treasury to 
name a few of the positions he 
has held. 

Now Connally is funning for 
president and presenting 
some conservative but frank 
alternatives to proposals being 
offered by the present 

Connally holds very strong 
and solid views on what he 
feels the relationship betyveen 
the United States and Russia 
should be lollowing the Soviet 
move into Afghanistan that 
echo the traditional con- 
servative ideal ot a strong 
national defense. 

"1 said on October 1 1 (1979) 
belore the terrorists took over 
our embassy, before they 
seized our people, before the 
Russian invasion ot 
Afghanistan. 1 said then that 
was the most vital and most 
yoiatile part of the world. 1

On other issues. Connally 
moves a bit away from the 
right - but never too far. For 
example he proposes that we 
should control inflation by 
controlling government 

spending, balancing the 
budget, cutting taxes across 
the board by $25-35 billion and 
"restore a health rate of 
productivity to the economy." 

He also supports decon- 
trolling oil prices, exploration 
of nuclear power as a safe 
alternative and immediately 
raised defense expenditures 
but does not support National 
Health Insurance. It is, he 
says, "a classic example of 
treating the symptoms and 
ignoring the cause of the 
problem." which he states 
simply is that medical costs 
are being driven up by 
inflation and excess demand.

Gong Show not "Classic" material 

by Mark Mitchell 
Feature Editor 

! lately. I have been 
jesting much of my time into 
se music of modern culture 
ml have found it to be 
comprehensibly vapid. I 
wuld say the a.m. radio 
remeiits fi« this description. 
fa contempt was further 
ited when 1 entered the 
Theta Kappa Gong Show 
was "gonged" while 
Miig the Chopin "Prelude 
: Minor Op. 28. No. 20." I 
not expect tt to bc^an over 
lining success, nor did I 
ect tn be embarrassed bv a 
klitr tasteless audience. ^ et, 
take gieat consolation in 

knowing that it is a reflection 
ol the cultural deficiency 
plaguing many of our students 
and administrators and not 
mvselt To make it easier to 
bear 1 have adopted the 
lollowing expression, 
"Gouged, but not forgotten." 

A true justice was done 
when Sandra Alphonso was 
chosen winner yyith her vocal 
and instrumental performance 
of "Even Now" 
Manilow. She is 
natural and 

Most popular music is a 
display of heavy bass, 
pnmordial rvthms. and 
simplistic melodies. This does

Soft and "warm-it's time 

Moments ot past better left 

Maybe its better if she were 



not music make, regardless of 
anyone's opinion. 

To those able to find merit 
in such music, I offer but one 
suggesion - listen to classical 
music and learn to appreciate 
its aesthetic and social value 
In tact, you are not truly 
educated until you have a 
knowlede of this facet of the 

Countless television and 
radio themes and popular 
themes. A fertile hunting 
ground for these popular- 
izations may be found in the 
folkwing works' "Prelude in 
C Minor Op. 28, No. 2" ot 
Chopin, "Prelude to Act 1 of 
Carmen" by Bizet, "Fantasie 
in F" ot Chopin. Piano 
Concerto No. 2 (Seeopnd 
Movement) of Rachmaninoff, 
"Etudes d'execution 
Ttanscendents" of Liszt, 
"Impromptu No. 4" of 
Schubert. "Peer Gynt Suite 
No. 1" of Grieg and March 
from "Love for Three 
Oranges" by Prokofief. 

Obviously, fine music is 
more popular than imagined. 
Following are the works to 
whet the appetites of those 
interested in two of the major 
forms of classical music, 

The piano literature famous 
to most people yvas composed 
in the 19th Century. 
Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, 
Liszt. Schumann, and were at 
the vanguard of that century's 
musical achievements. In their 
works run Byronic 

Romanticism, Sublime 
Poeticism, and Dynamic 
Classicism. Representative 

yvorks, which also provide a 
standard for listening are: 
"Polonaise in Ab Major Op. 
53". Scherzi in B and Bb 
minoi. Ncturnes in E and F, 
and Sonatas in B and Bb minor 
ol Chopin; "Moonlight". 
"Pathetiquc". and 

"Appassionata" sonatas of 
Beethoven; "Kinderszenen" 
and "Grand Sonata" of 
Schumann; Variations and 
Intermezzi of Brahms; and 
"Mephisto Waltz: No. 1", 
Consolations. Rhapsodies, and 
Etudes of Liszt. Although a 
composer in a sense different 
from earlier artists, Busoni 
was perhaps history's greatest 
piano transenptor. His 
monumental works include the 
"Organ Toccata in C Minor" 
and the "Chaconne" from the 
violin partita in D. 

In this writers opinion, the 
greatest pianists, in order, 
arc Valdunir Hoiowif/.' his 
Chopinesque restraint and 
controlled Lisztain fireworks, 
coupled with superhuman 
technical abilities make him 
the greatest Romantic Pianist; 
Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lazar 
Berman, Alicia de Laroccha 
and Van Cliburn all figure 
prominently as well. Cliburn, 
while technically flawless, is 
among the coldest players. 

The volume of symphonic 
music is so astounding until 
accurate descriptions of 
composers and works is 
impossible. Define highlights 
include Symphonies 3, 5. and 9 
of Beethoven, Symphonies 4. 
5, and 6 and Ballet Music of 
Tchaikovsky, and almost any 

of the Mozart and Hadyn 
yvorks. Mahler's 

"Ressurection Symphony" 
and the works of Bruckner 
Bartok and Brahms are all 
solid offerings. Ravel's 
"Boleio" and the Gershwin 
Songs and "An American In 
Pans" are contemporary 
classics. This is a dynamic 
facet ol music and- one with 
works to appeal to everyone 

Obviously, it is impossible 
to touch on even the majority 
ol fouiis, but I hope to have 
presented a diversified 
sampling of two of the most 
accessible forms of music of 

The point of this work has 
been to convey the idea that 
classical music is the source of 
all ot todays music and that it 
is imperative to understand it. 

Elton John, Billy Joel. Rick 
Wakeman, Barry Manilow, 
Fleetwood Mac and Alan 
Parsons were all trained in the 
rudiments ol classical music. 
Hence, their originality, 
solidity, and textural variety in 
their music. 

Walter Carlos, so-creator of 
the Moog Synthesizer, wrote 
all of the music for Stanley 
Kubricks A Clockwork 
Orange, which is only 
electronic transcriptions of 
Beethoven, Rossini, and 
Purcell. Perhaps this would be 
a median ground for those 
wishing to pursue classical 
music. It is at least a start. 
Ultimately. I have faith in the 
individual initiative of man. If 
this is true, maybe this 
presentation will not go

Pacers sweep alumni weekend 

by Bill Meeks 
Sports Writer 

The PBJC baseball team 
with a record of 11-4. beat Fort 
Lauderdale 7-3 and Florida 
Southern 5-3 this past week. 
Tom Krupa hit a solo homer to 
highlight the Florida Southern 

The baseball team then 
played a benefit game for the 
American Cancer Society 
against an Alumni team of 
former Pacer players who are 
in four year schools, semi, and 
professional baseball. 

Three-hundred and fourteen 
people watched as the 
Alumni's and Pacers battled to 
a 3-3 tie. Tom Hovvser of the 
alumni led all hitters by going 
3 for 4. Nelson Rood of the 
Pacers went 2 for 2 to lead the 
current team. 

Ross Baumgarten started on 
the mound for the Alumni's 

and was relived by Andy 
McGaffigan. Henry Cook, and 
Ted Adkins. The Pacer hurlers 
were Randy O'Neal, Jorge 
Vega, and Scott Mikesh. 

There were several out- 
standing efforts from different 
individuals. For example, Jim 
Wilkinson crashing into the 
outfield fence to try to snab a 
potential homerun, then Jim 
Chism picked up the ball and 
fired it to the infield to pick off 
runners at first and third. 
Another was a long fly ball 
caught by Alumni Gerry 
Continelli. The game was an 
enjoyable affair for those who 
sat in the cold evening air and 
watched an excellent 
exhibition of top flight 
baseball action. 

The Pacers play a series of 
games at home, against 
Biscayne College Feb. 1 7, and 
Broward Central on Wed. and 

Angels to fly high in AL Wes 

Double trouble for lady Pacers 

The PBJC Softball team lost a doubleheader to Broward 
Central last week; losing the first game 5-4, and the second 8-1. 
Pat Di Menna went 3 for 4 in both games and Carolyn Cowden 
hit a grand slam home run in game one. 

When asked about his teams performance Coach Anderson 
said. "We Stunk! We were in the wrong place at the wrong time 
and made too many mental mistakes. Our pitcher never backed 
up plays at the plate, and the catcher wasn't hustling around the 
plate. We were going through the motions, we were anticipating 
one play, and one play only. The team hit the ball hard but right 
at people. I'll guarantee one thing though, they'll neverplay like 
that again," commented Anderson. 

The next home game for the Pacers is Wednesday, Feb. 20.

The following are pre- 
dictions for the American 
League West division for the 
1980 baseball season. 

1. California Angels" - The 

Angels may have lost Nolan 
Ryan in the free-agent draft, 
but picked up Al Covvens, 
Freddie Patek, and Bruce 
Kison via fee agency and 

The Angel hitting is 
superb with the likes of MVP 
Don Baylor, Bobby Grich. 
and Rod Carew. Defense and 
bench strength is also 

Pitching may become a 
problem. Dave Frost and 
Mike Clear are still very 
young. Dave LaRoche had a 
terrible year last season. 
Frank fanana has had 
constant arm problems. 

The Angels are not a super 
team, but if the hurlers stay 
healthy; watch out. 

2. Kansas City Royals - The 

Royals did nothing over the 
offseason except to trade for 
Willie Aiekens, who had 
missed the last part of last 
season because of a broken 

The Royals hitting, lead by 
George Brett and Amos Otis, 

is still strong but not as 
powerful .is it once was. 

The pitching staff is 
loaded with problems. 
Dennis Leonard had a .500 
season last year, Steve 
Miugori has retired, Al 
Hrabosky went the free 
agent route. Paul Splittorff, 
Larry Gura, and Leonard 
lead a staff made up of 
mostly vw'ng hurlers. 

3. Texas Rangers - The 

Rangers are made up of 
scrap-iron left over super- 
stars of other teams such as: 
Willie Montanez, Mickey 
Rivers, and Fergie Jenkins. 

Buddy Bell, A! Oliver, and 
Jim Kern had great years 
last season. If other players 
can do the same, then the 
Rangers will be in a race for 
the pennant. 

If Texas reacquires 
Gaylord Perry, it will help 
the declining pitching staff. 

4. Seattle Mariners - The 

expansion team is starting an 
upward climb to the top of 
the division. The hitting is 
definitely there; Willie 
Horton, Bruce Bochte, and 
Dan Meyer lead the home 
run hitting corps. 

The Mariners are a young 
team and it will take them a 
few years to be in contention. 

Players like Mike Parrott arcj 
Jim Beat tie are putting [hJ 
Mariners in the rigtj 

5. Minnesota Twins - Afie 

many surprising upp. 
division finishes, expericne 
will finally catch up to ik 
Twins. The Twins arc leadb 
veterans Jerry Koosins 
Mike Marshall, and Bwi 
Wynegar. The starting t«; 
is comprised of mainly voir.; 
inexperienced players. 

A team that loses playe 
like Rod Carew. Unz 
Bostock, Larry Hisle y; 
Dave Goltz year after je 
and not pick up players c 
equal capabilities, can r^ 
expect to slay in contour. 
for a playoff spot. 

6. Chicago White Sox - It 

Chisox have almost nouV, 
They have four left-hanus 
starting pitchers, inclutL. 
PBJC graduate S;- 
Baumgarten, and cctiir 
fielder Chet Lemon. Besii

Questions and answers 

The fossil record proves . . .? 

QUESTION:Do biologists teach 
transmutation [mutations 

causing new groups of animals 
by natural selection] as a 
scientific fact? 

ANSWERi All biology text- 
books teach that there is no 
' laboratory or other proof that 
transmutations can be true. 
Mendal's Law of Heredity is 
accepted by biologists as a 
scientific truth. "Like begets 
Like" with variations caused 
by breeding or mutations 
which are the result of 
different heredity or physical 
alterations within the original 
species. Biologists know that 
scientists can classify animals 
into species on a basis of the 
chromosomes contained with- 
in the organism. 

Secondly, all scientists 
recognize ' ' micro-evolution" 
as caused by mutations within 
a family of plants or animals. 
It is ■■mega-evolution," prov- 
ing one family "evolved" via 
transmutation into another, 
that has defied proof. 
QUESTION: Why do biolotists 
reh on mutations to be the 

mechanisms of evolution? 

(1) The process of mutation 
is the only known source of 
new materials of genetic 
variability — and hence, 
evolution. This and the 
following statements were 
said by Professor Dobzhansky, 
one of the outstanding 
geneticists today (Sinnot, 
Dunn, and Dobzhansky, 
Principles of Genetics, 4th ed. 
Macmillan. 1950,p,315). 

(2) "Most mutations which 
arise in any organism are more 
or less disadvantageous to 
their possessors. The classical 
mutants obtained in 
Drosophila (fruit fly) show 
deteriation, breakdown, and 
the disappearance of some 
organs." (Dobzhansky, 
Theodosius, Evolution, 
Genetics, and Man, Wiley and 
Sons, 1955, p. 105). 

(3) "The deleterious 
chaiacter of most mutations 
seems to be a very serious 
d if f i c u 1 1 \ , " ( Evolution , 
Genetics, and Man, cited 
abo\e, p. 105). 

The fossil record has been 
diligently searched for transi- 
tion forms linking fish to 
amphibian. The closest link 
that has been proposed is that 
between rhipidistian cross- 
opterygian fish and amphibi- 
ans of the genus, 
Ichthyostega. Alleged associ- 
ational transitions occurred 
because there are strong 
likenesses of known forms. 

However, a close exami- 
nation reveals a tremendous 
gap between the two that 
would require a span of 
millions-of-years and innum- 
erable transitional forms 

during the intervening history. 
If the transitional forms could 
be isolated, (1) the transitional 
forms would show a slow, 
gradual change of the pectoral 
and pelvic fins of the 
crossopterygian fish into the 
feet and legs of the 
amphibians. (2) Secondly, the 
transitional forms would show 
a gradual loss of other fins. (3) 
Thirdly, and at the same time, 
there would of necessity have 
been changes in body 
structure adapting amphibians 
to become accomodated to the 
new terrestrial habitat. 
What are the facts? 

Questions anyone? 

If \ ol! have questions about the topic discussed in this issue of 
the "Son Sentential," please give them to us through the

for discussion during the semiar question-and-answer time. 

I was born in the United States and I've been to church.

Homecoming week "Controversial 


by Bill Meredith 

"Homecoming 1980 at PBJC was a 
week full of "ups and downs"," said 
Joe Brown, SGA President Pro-Tern. 
"The "ups" far outnumbered the 
"downs", but it seems that some select 
individuals have chqsen the latter to 
describe the atmosphere of the entire 
week's activities." 

Here is an account of Homecoming 
week - the Phi Theta Kappa Gong Show 
took place Monday, Februarya 11, with 
Sandra Alphonso emerging the winner. 
Club Day was Tuesday, the 12th, and 
the Wheelchair Basketball Game 
provides fun and entertainment for all 
involved on Valentines eve. 

The alumni Baseball Benefit Game 

was also exciting, with the former and 
current Pacer squards batting to a 3-3 

Friday the 15th entailed Costume 
Day, a Basketball Pep Rally, and the 
Homecoming Parade, which, despite 
inclimate weather, was quite 

The first "downer" came when the 
Racquetball Tournament was rained 
out, and the second was soon to follow 
as the Pacer Basketball team fell to 
Broward Central 79-72 in the 
Homecoming game. 

Still, one Pacer, namely Howard 
Hoskins, had to be pleased at halftime 
when he was crowned Homecoming 
King. Miss Cheryl Hill was crowned 

Queen, the Parade winner was the 
Dance Troupes' float, and the special 
surprise never showed up. 

The dance in the SAC Lounge later 
that evening, featuring the band 
"Paradise", actually turned out to be 
more of a concert than a dance. It was 
still an entertaining evening, though, 
for "Paradise" is enjoyable whether 
the audience is standing or sitting. 

Saturday, the 16th, turned out to be 
the most controversial day of 
Homecoming week, although no real 
conflict occured until after the John 
Prince Party at" the "mound circle". 
From 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. students, 
faculty, and outsiders enjoyed softball, 
volleyball, tug-o'-war, and the lovely 
pie-eating contest. 

But the main attraction was the 
"Battle of the Bands", which drew 
some surprising area talent. The band 
"Everest" emerged victorious, with 
the "Ain't Misbehavin' Band" second 
and the "Neurosurgeons" a close 
third. Other bands performing were, in 
declining point order, "Castro and the 
Convertibles", "Paxx", the "Sheffield 
Brothers Band", "Band X", and 

It was about 6 p.m., when the last 
band was packing up, that some 
motorcyclists and the park police 
engaged in their infamous activities. 

When the dust has cleared, about a 
dozen NON-PBJC people had been 
taken away for vandalism, resisting 
arrest, and other assorted charges.

Reagan receives mixed reviews 

by Bill Meredith 

California governor Ronald Reagan, 
spoke in the Sunshine Court Friday 
morning drawing mixed reactions from 
the audience for his views on foreign 
oil, gay rights, gun registration, and 
nuclear energy. 

Reagan opened his speech by 
announcing his convincing victory the 
previous day in the Alaskan Republican 
Presidential caucus. Reagan received 58 
percent of the votes casted, and carried 
14 of the 17 Alaskan districts. 

Questioning followed a brief speech, 
which centralized on President Carter's 
"inability to realize what the issues 

"There has to be a change, we 
cannot continue on the same path we 
are on," Reagan offered. "People are 
now ready for a change. ' ' 

In a more direct Carter attack, he 
said, "the Carter administration needs 
to be replaced by an administration 

that will remedy the damage that they 
have caused." 

Regarding inflation, Reagan sub- 
mitted "a freeze on the hiring of 
government employees (over 3 years), 
bringing federal government spending 
down, and a 30 percent tax reduction 

Summing up his speech before the 
questioning session, Reagan said, "1 
think the one thing the next President 
has to say to the world is that there will 
be no more Taiwans, and no more 

Asked about rising oil and gasoline 
prices Reagan offered, "the snowbound 
states need less gas in the yvinter than 
Florida and California. Also, we should 
realize the great potential for oil in 
Alaska, where there is a greater supply 
than in Saudi Arabia." 

"Should not gays and lesbians be 
grated the same rights as blacks?" 
Reagan was asked. He countered, "I 
don't know that they are not. I" believe 


this issue is more of an act Of for any crime in which a gun is 


than a question of 

Crowd of 1,200 listens to Reagans speech. 


Regarding gun registration, Reagan 
commented, "I never believed you 
could keep guns away from the 
criminals by taking them away from the 
honest people." He also proposed a 
manditory 15 year increase in sentence 


On nuclear power, Reagan said, 
"nuclear energy offers our best hope 
for energy in the next two decades. 
There has never been a fatality 
involving nuclear power." 

Reagan spent his last half hour at 
PBJC shaking hands before departing 
for lunch and more campaigning.

New Hampshire:Stepping stone for candidates 

The presidential primary election in 
New Hampshire is really starting to 
take some shape and move in a 
direction to show voters in other states 
just what they have to look forward to, 
at least where campaign tactics are 

They have a dirty fight to look 
forward to, and that goes for the 
Republicans as well as the Democrats. 

We've already gotten a glimpse of 
the Cater-Kennedy-Brown cut-throat 
policies via the news media. Their 
battle is one more of attacking 
personality and "leadership" qualities 
than it is of debating issues, and 
probably will remain so until Carter 
"comes out of the rose garden." No 
one outside the Carter camp expects 
that to happen any time soon; certainly 
not in time for the Florida primary on 
March 11. It's all a matter of "national 
security," a phrase we used to 
associate with another president, 
Richard Nixon. 

The Republicans, on the other hand, 
are leaving each other's personal lives 
out of the battle and concentrating 
heavily on issues. They are localizing 
the issues as much as possible, too. In 
Iowa they played up agriculture; in 

Maine it was energy; in New 
Hampshire it looks like gun control is a 

The problem with this localization is 
that it has gone too far. Everyone in the 
race seems to be saying the same thing 
by taking the popular local position, 
and there is no display of courage or 
leadership in this kind of approach. 

Few people in New Hampshire rally 
behind gun control legislation, so it 
would take a certain amount of courage 
and respect in one's position to stand 
up in front of, say, a meeting of the 
national Rifle Association, and say 
"what's wrong with gun control?" 

That's what Congressman John 
Anderson did, and that's the kind of 
thing that makes his campaign stand 
out from the rest of the Republicans'. 

Most of his positions are against the 
traditional conservative Republican 
dogma. It's even been said that he's 
"the best Democrat the Republicans 
could nominate;" but it's put him far 
behind in popularity. 

One message Anderson sends out, 
though, comes through loud and clear 
and should be listened to by ALL 
voters. It's very simple: "THINK

SGA's Homecoming lineup a winner 

Congratulations to members 
of the Student Government 
Association (SGA). What a joy 
it was to witness the 
remarkable planning and 
organization that went into 

this year's homecoming 

SGA president Polly Young 
and the rest of her crew 
worked for months ahead of 
time to insure that home- 

coming week would prove 
flawless. And that it did. 

Although attendance 
records weren't broken at such 
events as the Wheel Chair 
basketball game, the parade, 
and the dance, it can still be 
said that the homecoming 
activities were a success. 

No cleat er example of this 
was evident but at the picnic at 
John Prince Park on Saturday. 
The first get together of it's 

kind thus far this year, it gave 
one a good feeling to know 
that som many students 
turned-out to spend the day. 

Looking around the 
grounds, not only were small 
children spotted, but dogs, 
cats, motorcycles, and non- 
students were present as well. 

Except for the "unlawful 
actions' ' by a few un-PBJC'ers 
who refused to leave the park 
at the end of the day, the 

whole afternoon was relaxfuJ. 

Rock bands kept the 
audience awake and alert to 
their surroundings, the pie- 
eating contest filled a few 
tummy's, and the softball 
game provided some "after- 
noon debate' ' . 

PBJC is fortunate in having 
SGA representatives thai work 
overtime tor the benefit of the 
students, and lucky in the fact 
that the students appreciate it. 

Just as long as you got it 
It doesn't matter how

Editors Note- 
It should be made clear that Mr. Croft was not 
present at the homecoming festivhes. 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to thank my fellow students for 
the wonderful example of scholastic behavior 
exemplified at the homecoming picnic. As 
college students, and the leaders of the future, I 
propose that such behavior be an example to 
young Americans everywhere of what will be 
expected of them when they reach college age. 

If films could be made of college functions 
such as at the picnic, our jr. high and high 
school age brethren may see and learn, thus 
preparing themselves to carry the increasingly 
demanding conditions of college life. Things 
such as breaking laws, alcohol consumption, 
smoking marijuana, hashish, and snorting 
cocaine may be quite new to the aspiring 
underclassmen; but by the matntainence of the 
inertia of collegiate behavior set forth in our 
homecoming picnic, our younger people will 
receive a better understanding of what mature 
college students stand for in this country. We 
aie the leaders of the future! 

If the corruption could be started at the jr. 
high and high school levels, just think of the 
product that would come into bloom as such 
picnic behaviot is carried on up through jr. 
college level and on into upper division? 
Breaking windshields and police care 
overturning may be a little much to introduce at 
the jr. high level, but windshield breaking could 
be introduced in high school and various 
methods for using and aquiring marijuana and 
other college drugs could also be introduced at 
this stage. Political corruption and test key 
stealing would have to wait til jr. college level, 
but intensifying law breaking habits and 
disrespect for all laws may be worked in at a 
fairly young age! Promiscuity in femals 
behavior and dress should be emphasized to the 
girls. Everyone knows that getting the grade is 
all that is important, and not at all how, or 


, j,. 


whether any honor was at stake. To quote from 
one in my micro-economics class. 

' 'Just as long as you got it- 
it doesn't matter how you got it." 

Congratulations to the participants from Palm 
Beach Jr, College in their fine representation of 
what being a college student is all about. I just 
hope to God those that saw that mess do not 
judge the whole student body on the debached 
acts of a few.

Warning- some doctors have detei mined that

It ts an undisputed fat that people can make

In last month s Science Digest, an article that 
conccred the idea of mind and bod} inner

It pointed out that some diseases could have 
an origin in the mind, and certain psychological^ 
stales of mind could lead to a detenoration of 
physical health and susceptibility to a disease. 

"We are not saying that behavior causes the 
disease but lather that stresses and life 
experiences can contnbute to it's onset or 
excelleiate its coutse," clarifies psychologist 
Di Keith Shrodei. 

Also, numerous studies have been conducted 
concerning cancer patients and theii states of

suppiession of denial oi distress are shortei 

Howcvet, Dr. Karl Hellstrom, a cancer 
tesearcher at The University of Washington

Candidate Cox - Soft spoken but effective 

by Tony Rizzo 
Staff Writer 

Lake Worth City Commissioner Jim Cox does 
not come across as the typical politician. He is 
not conservative, nor is he excessively 
flamboyant. His easy manner parallels perfectly 
with the confident yet smooth way in which he 
expi esses himself. He has something to say. 
And basically it's that a city can operate 
efficiently and thoroughly free of excessive 
spending habits and an awesome amount of 

He is also not the typical politician in the 
sense that he does not promise the city of Lake 
Worth the proverbial "pie in the sky". His 
record proves that very well. Apart from what is 
termed as fiscal conservatism he has lowered 
the City of Lake Worth's taxes, provided city 
residents with free accessibility to their beach, 
and has encouraged low density for the area. 

If anyone wants to build, they of course must 
have the complete approval of the city as well as 
follow a clever rule to preserve the city's 
historical environment. As Cox recently told the 
Beachcomber. "When someone wants to build a 
new structure we specify that the outside of the 
building be like that of the old Spanish 
stucco-type in order to preserve the historical

Cox is up for re-election on March 4. He is 

very optimistic about the city's future and is 
pleased with the way in which the city is 
operating now. "On the whole, the city is 
running smoothly. We have a new 
administration as well as a tight budget so we're 
able to keep the taxes down. ' ' 

While Cox Is 28 years old he received a great 
deaf of support from many senior citizens in the 
area during the previous election on March 4th, 
1978 "I got a lot of support from the older 
people, I was somewhat surprised that 
many older people supported a young person. 
Many have told me that they would like to see 
more young people involved in civic affairs and 
that they were glad to see me running for the 
Commissioner post as well as of course taking 
an interest in the communities civic affairs. ' ' 

Apart from serving as Lake Worth's 
Commissioner he is with an insurance firm in 
West Palm Beach. He also serves on the Florida 
League of Cities' Urban Administration 

Cox has an excellent chance of winning in the 
upcoming election. This is only so because his 
record as well as his present handling of the job 
prove that one in a political position does not 
need to ride on promises or flared and dramatic 
speech making. And as long as he continues to 
keep the city operating to improve. That in itself 
is a representation of a man who is soft-spoken, 
yet effective.

Mickey Mantle hits PBJC campus 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

Baseball Hall-of-Famer 

Mickey Mantle of New York 
Yankee fame, visited the 
PBJC campus Feb. 15 Mantle 
was in the Palm Beaches to 
repiesent an insurance firm, 
and to attend the Pacers 
baseball alumni dinner 

The retired power hitter of a 
career total of 536 home runs, 
had much to say at a local 
ptess conference. 

Mantle, who retired after 
the 1968 season, was asked if 
the transition of playing to 
private life was tough? Mantle 
responded, "What I miss is 
the taking away of the 
competition and the other 
ballplayers; the other players 
were like brothers. When I left 
the game, it was like my 
family was taken away The 
only time I get to see them is 
during old timer's games. 
(Whitey) Ford and (Billy) 
Martin were my favorites, so 1 
see them often. 1 miss seeing 
the Berra's and the Bauer's. 
You don't realize how much 
you miss them until you go 
back to the old timer's 

With all the problems today 
of players and press, Mantle 
thought he had a good 
relationship with the press. 
"My relationship with the 
press was alright. When I first 
came up, they called me a 
"loof". They didn't realize 
that I was only 19 and scaled. I 
was misquoted quite often 
when I first joined the 
Yankees. I'll tell you one 
thing, I had alot of respect for 
Thurman Munson when he 
broke Jim Bouton's mike in 
half when Bouton tried for an 

What was Mantel's reaction 
to Munson's death? "I just 
couldn't believe that he died. I 
didn't know him that well 
though. He and (Graig) 
Nettles were just like the old 
time players. 1 would have 

been pioud to have been on 
Thurman' steam." 

The Yankees opened up 
their spring training camp on 
the 14th. The pitchers and 
catchers already have 
reported, the remaining squad 
reports on the 28th Now , who 
will be there to help out? 
Mickey of course According 
to Mantle, he has been at 
every spring training since he 
has retired. A player of 
Mantle's stature must help out 
all the players, right? Not 
according to Mantle, "I'm not 
teally a batting instructor, the 
Yanks already have one; 
Charley Lau. I just dress up, 
I'm only there for show. I 
don't believe in batting 
instructors. I think the more 
you listen to them, the worse 
off you'll become." 

There is potential for a 
baseball strike for the 
upcoming season if an 
agreement can not be met. 
Mantle, who played in an era 
of no million dollar contracts 
and contracts that had trade 
clauses in them, had these 
feelings; "Until someone told 
me about the potential for a 
strike a couple of weeks ago, I 
didn't even know about it. 
What would the players be 
mad about anyway? 
Especially with all the money 
they're making." 

Comparing salaries of 
today's players and the 
players in Mantle's era, 
Mickey said, "The most I ever 
made was $100,000. 1 made it 
for the last eight years of my 
career." When asked if he was 
playing today, who would he 
be with in salary, Mantle 
responded, "Today? Who's 
making the most? There are 
people sitting on the Yankee 
bench making more than 1 
ever did." 

Today, with the players 
seeming to have unlimited 
rights, compared to when 
Mantle was playing, having no 


Gerry Continelli returns to the Pacers, 

rights at all. Did Mantle think 
he was taken advantage of? "1 
never felt I was taken 
advantage of. I don't think 1 
would have ever become a 
free-agent " 

"In 1956, I won the triple 
crown. 1 lead the league in just 
about everything. They 
(management) offered me a 
ten thousand dollar raise I 
didn't send the contract back 
to them At the time, I was 
making $60,000, the 
Williams', Mays' and the 
Musial's were all making 
$100,000, 1 wanted to be there 

"When owner Geoige 
Weiss said, if I didn't sign, 
they'd trade me to Cleveland 
foi Rocky Colavito and Herb 
Score. Hell, 1 reported to 
spring training the next day. 
No way I wanted to go to 

There were two other great 
centerfielders in New York 
when Mantle was playing, 
they were Willie Mays and 
Duke Snider. Comparisons 
were always made between 
the three. "I never paid 
attention to it," Mantle 
responded to the 

comparisons. "I don't think 
anyone else paid much 
attention to it either. ' ' 

Speaking of Willie Mays. 
Mays was thrown out of 
baseball by Commissioner 
Bowie Kuhn for excepting a 
job at an Atlantic City Casino 
hotel recently. Mantle had 
these comments on the 
confrontation between Kuhn 
and Mays, "I agree with 
Willie. Hey, a job's a job. If 
Mays could make $100,000 a 
year by just standing around a 
casino, then good for him. I'd 
do it; but I'd probably blowthe 

What did Mantle think 
about the problems between 
Hank Aaron and Kuhn? Aaron 
was upset about not being 
named player of the decade.

Welcome back, Gerry Confine 

Sports Writer 

In a sense, the wayward 
prodigal son has returned. 
Gerry Continelli a former 
Pacer player has come back as 
coach, after spending time as 
a minor league player in the 
St. Louis Cardinals 
organization. Continelli was 
released from the Cardinals 
due to the June draft because 
too many players were signed. 
He explains it was this way, 
"The scouts are looking for 
young ball players in the 17-18 
year range. They sign them to 
contracts and put them in 
minor leagues for seasoning. 
They (the contract signees) get 
chosen over free agents when 
cuts are made, even if a free 
agent is doing better. Why?, 
because the club has so much 
money invested in the kid. ' ' 

After his release, Gerry 
worked as a Physical 
Education teacher at Mary 
Helper of Christians 

Orphanage, and then as an 
instructor at a baseball school 
in Winter Haven. While he 
was there, he met such greats 
as Denny Doyle and Carl 

Gerry started his baseball 
career at PBJC where in his 
final year, lie led the team in 
hitting. Then, with help of 
Coach Dusty Rhodes, he 
signed with the Cardinals. 
One day while he was out 
bicycling, he was hit by a car. 
The bike was demolished but 
Gerry received only cuts and 
scrapes. Then, a man 
appeared with a prayer card 
and Gerry, a Catholic, got the 
message. He went back to 
church. While at the Cardinals 
camp he passed out prayer 
cards to other players. No one 
razzed Continelli about his 
baseball evangelism. Players 
participated in prayer sessions 
and with the presence of the 
tremendous pressure and

When you're thinking about college 
you've got to be thinking about money. 
Lots of money these days. College is 
also a good reason to think about the

Educational Assistance Program is 
available not only for 3 and 4 year 
enlistments, but now in special career

accumulate well over $7,000 for col lege

I also played in the World

The PBJC Women's Golf 
team, led by Coach Debbie 
Ruday, finished fifth out of 
sixteen teams in a golf 
tournament held February 3-5 
at Cypress Creek in Orlando. 
The Pacers are led by two 
sophomore All-Americans, 
Baibard Bunkowsky and Paula 
Sdivtnsky, both who were 
members of the Pacer squad 
which was number one in the 
nation in '78-79. This year's 
team consists of Barbara 
Bunkowsky, Paula Slivinsky, 
Paula Cherrenak, Kelly 
Jackson, and Julie Kintz. 

When questioned about her 
team's play, Coach Ruday 
said, "At this point in the 
season the girls game is 
excellent. They are swinging 
well and are working on their 
skills to sharpen them for out 
next match." The Pacers play

Every boys dream is to play

could call it the "American

Being a wrestler doesn't

you are great, and that's what 
I am, great. Nobody is as great 
as I am. Ali may have been 
great, Ruth may have been 
great, but nobody is or was as 
great as me. That is what this 
school needs, greatness, that 
is me! 


It was a real thrill for me to 
be elected to the Palm Beach 
County Hall of Fame. Don't 
listen to those other guys, I 
don 't gloat like they do. 

1 went to high school in this 
area, none of the others did. 
The others try to grab ail the 
glory, but I just let my record 
speak for itself. Last years

number one in the country. 
The other two guys can't say 

The other guys say how 
famous they are, that doesn't 
matter to me. As long as my 
Pacer team plays up to it's 
potential, then that's okay 
with me. Players like Ross 
Baumgarten are making it big 
in the major leagues, and they 
attended PBJC. 

One guy wrestles, the other 
guy played baseball, they 
never coached a college team 
like I have. I enjoy it 
tiemendously and get a great 
thrill from it. 

No matter what anyone 
says, I am the coach of the 
Pacers, and I am proud of it. -

The PBJC Pacer basketball 
season came to an abrupt end 
m the FJCC Division IV 
Tournament at Broward

Broward North on Feb 19 
The defeat gave Coach Joe 
Ceravolo's team a final record 
of 13-14 for the '79-80 

Nothing seemed to go right 
against the Tiotters as a 15 
minute delay, an 

inexperienced scoreboard 
operator, in addition to 
shooting only 31 pereent from 
the floor dropped PBJC 
behind by as many as 20 
points. Centei Jeff 
Washington, finishing the 
season with a flurry, scored 20 
points and hauled down 16 
rebounds in a losing effort.

which finished the regular 
season with a 6-8 division

ExpOS tO Unseat Pirates Pacers sweep Broward 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

Predictions for the 1980 
Baseball Season - National 
League East. 

1. Montreal Expos - After 
finishing two games out of 
first last season, the Expos 
should take the Eastern 
division in 1980. Acquisitions 
of Ron LeFlore, Rowland 
Office- and Fred Norman 
compliment an already 
powerhouse hitting and 
pitching team. 

With veterans such as 
Steve Rogers and Bill Lee 
playing alongside young 
stars Ellis Valentine and 
Larry Parrish, there is no 
reason why the Expos won't 
bring a pennant to Canada 

2. Pittsburgh Pirates - The 
only reason why the Pirates 
aren't going to make it two 
years in a row, is because of 
a questionable pitching staff. 

Bruce Kison has left for 
richer fortunes in California, 
Don Robinson had arm 
surgery during the off 
season, the three relief men 
(Kent Tekulve, Grant 
Jackson and" Enrique Romo) 
were worked to their 
extremes last year. 

The Pirate lumber may be 
the best in baseball. The 
Bucs are lead by co-MVP 
Willie Stargell, Dave Parker 
and Bill Madlock. 

If the Pirate pitching does 
hold up, then there will be a 
race down to the wire. If the 
hurlers do not stay healthy, 
then the "family" will be 
divorced from the title. 

3. Philadelphia Phillies - The 

Phils may be just as strong 
as the Pirates and the Expos. 
Pitching is what held back 
the Phillies last year. Steve 
Carlton had a mediocore 
season, Tug McGraw had a 
disasterous year and Larry

\ e Vj» 

Chicago Cubs' Dave Kingman 


Christenson was injured 
almost all season. The Phils 
pitchers are injury prone. If 
there are no injuries then it 
will be a three team race. 

Rebounding seasons by 
Greg Luzinski and McGraw 
are definitely needed. Pete 
Rose is always great, and 
will help in the strech drive. 

4. Chicago Cubs - The 

Cubbies have a bunch of 
stars and a bunch of duds. If 
the Cubs could make some 
half decent trades instead of 
picking up players such as 
Mike O'Berry and Mike 
Tyson, then they will stay in 
the bottom of the division for 
years to come. 

The Cubs stars are some of 
the best around. The 
Chicago team is lead by Rick 
Reuschel, Bill Buckner, Cy 
Young award winner Bruce 
Sutter, and National League 
Home Run leader Dave 

5. St. Louis Cardinals - 

Having to been known to 
have one of the best pitching 
staffs in baseball the last few 
years, the pitchers went 
dead last season. A rebound 
by the starters and the 
bullpen could put the Birds 
into the upper division. 

Hitting is no problem to 
the Redbirds. Co-MVP Keith 
Hernandez, catcher Ted 
Simmons and newly acquired 
Bobby Bonds lead the crew. 

6. New York Mets - Met fans

The Candidates of 1980 

Amid balloons, a six piece

of about 200 gathered at 9:15

Who's Running? 

The Candidates of 1B80 

Celia Vock 


Last brother in an American Dynasty 

Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 
speaking to a cheering crowd ot 
support ers after his landslide victory in 
Massachusettes over President Jimmy 
Carter and California Governor Jerry 
Brown, said, "during the past four 
months we have tried to carry this 
campaign over the length and breadth 
of this nation and we have faced 
adversity and dissapointment." 

That is true. Only a few months ago 
the Senator held a 2-1 lead in polls 
taken among the nation's democrats, 
but public support of the President in 
the Iran crisis turned the tide in what 
looked like a runaway for Kennedy. 

Still, even though the significance of 
it was played down as being Kennedy's 
home state, the Massachusettes win 
put him ahead in the delegate count. It 
stands, heading into the Southern 
primaries, Ill-Kennedy; 85-Carter. 

That kind of challenge has changed 
the man who came to us, a dark horse 
in 1 976, saying "my name is Jimmy, 
and 1 want to be your President." 

With the Florida primary taking 
place tomorrow, March 11, it's time we 
took a close look at the issues and the 
man who has launched a vigorous 
attack on President Carter and set out 
to do what no man has done in this 
century, take the party nomination 
away from an incumbent president. 

Ted Kennedy is the last of the 
Kennedy brothers, the youngest but 
the most thoroughly political. He has 
avoided presidential politics for years, 
but discontent with the way Carter has 
been serving as President and also with 
the direction of the country's economic 
and foreign policies, he finally decided 
that 1980 was the election in which he 
would run. 

At a time when America appears to 
be taking a sharp turn towards 
conservativism, Kennedy remains a 
fixture on the left. When he announced 
his candidacy most people had no idea 
what he stood for or what his voting 
record in the Senate looked like. The 
question was raised of "what will 
happen when people realize that 
Kennedy's record is more liberal than 
George McGovern's?" What happened 
was he went down in the polls. 

But the polls have not halted 
Kennedy's efforts. He is still hotly in 
pursuit of the opportunity to get Carter 
to "come out of the rose garden and 
debate the issues. In his speech at 
Georgetown on February 7, he 
reminded the crowd that "if we could 
discuss foreign policy frankly when 
Hitler was at the English Channel, 
surely we can discuss foreign policy 
when the Soviet Union has crossed the 
border of Afghanistan." 

"If the Vietnam War taught us 
anything, it is precisely that when we 
do'not debate our foreign policy that we 
may drift into deeper trouble. It a 
president's policy h right, debate will 
strengthen the national concensus, tt it 
is wrong, debate may save the country 
from catastrophe." 

Despite all the efforts Kennedy has 
made to coax Carter into a debate, 
Carter stands firmly on the answer that 
he does not see how he can devote time 
to partisan political activity while he is 
handling delicate international 
situations in Iran and Afghanistan, 
which is precisely what Kennedy would 
love to debate, among other things. 

Addressing the Consumer 
Federation of America on February 7, 
Kennedy declared, "the fact is that 
President Carter's anti-inflation policy 
has been a calamity." Looking at the 
Carter record, he points out that it 
shows consumer prices up 18 percent, 
interest rates up to 16 percent, gasoline 
prices up 95 percent, housing costs up 
13.5 percent, unemployment at 6.2 
percent, Social Security benefits cut 
$600,000,000 and abandonment ot 
Kennedy's Comprehensive National 
Health Plan. • . , 

So what is Kennedy proposing to do 
to combat all these rising percentages 
if he is elected to office? To start with, 
he calls for an immediate freeze on 
wages, prices, profits, dividends, 
interest rates and rents for six months, 
followed by mandatory controls for as 
long as necessary. 

"The time has come for a trank 
admission that under this President the 
voluntary guidelines have run their 
course and have failed," he said m 
support of his own plan, which many 
economists state also will not work but 
are beginning to favor as an alternative 
to the Carter plan. 

Along with the wage and price 
controls, the- Senator supports wage, 
price and credit policies that are strictly 
applied, enforcement of antitrust laws 
against monopolistic enterprises and 
new legislation to reverse the trend in 
which large corporations control more 
and more of the nation's assets. 

Kennedy advocates "a strong dose 
of competition" through deregulation 
"of competitive industries such as the 
airlines and trucking, but is in strong 
opporition to the decontrol of oil prices, 
and calls for a sharp reduction of OPEL 
oil imports. , 

"The cost of home heating oil has 
soared to 95 cents a gallon, and now we 
discover that Exxon has registered the 
first S4 billion profit in the entire 
history of industrial corporations, 
"And these domestic concerns are 

not merely matters of social justice. 
They are "also at the center of our 
foreign crisis. Iran and Afghanistan 
demonstrate a fundamental truth of our 
American tradition: we are carelessly 
dependant on OPEC oil. A house 
weakened in its own foundation cannot 
stand, and unless we put our energy 
house in order, our strength and 
credibilitv will continue to fall. 

"The 'Carter administration has 
accepted our petroleum paralysis." 
Kennedy continues, "They talk of 
sacrifice", but it is an unequal sacrifice, 
founded on unequal prices that bring 
hardship to our people. The President s 
decision to decontrol the price of oil will 
cost the average family S1000 each year 
throughout the decade of the 1980's." 

"We all remember the Democratic 
Presidential Candidate in 1972 whose 
campaign was a fail because he 
proposed assistance of S1000 a yearfor 
every person in poverty. How then are 
we to regard a Democratic President m 
1980 who wants to do the opposite; who 
wants to take S1000 a year from each 
family and transfer it to the oil 

Kennedy wants to see tough controls 
on oil company profits, a. strong 
conversion program to make 
Americans less dependant on foreign 
oil. responsible development of 
synthetic fuels at a pace consistent with 
'"'technological reality." and rigorous 
development of solar energy, hydro- 
electric power and gasohol. 

He also supports a two-year 
moratorium on new nuclear power 
plant construction until the issue of 
safetv is resolved. Kennedy's Senate 
record is sound on education, having 
served as a member of the Educational 
Subcommittee during his entire" 17 
-years in Congress. The original 
Guaranteed Student Loan program had 
his sponsorship, along with sponsor- 
ship of bilingual education, Indian 
education. Teacher Corps, aid to 
medical and nursing schools and nurse 
training. He opposed recommended 
budget cuts for the National Direct 
Student Loan Program and education 
for the handicapped and the 
Carter-proposed phase-out of social 
security benefits to 18-21 year old 
post-secondary students. 
The Senator still supports affirmative 

action in admissions and enforecement 
of Title IX when many are beginning to 
question its effectiveness. 

"If equal opportunity is to be a 
reality in our lifetimes, then it 
sometimes is not enough to stop 
discriminating now. Affirmative steps 
may be required to reverse deeply 
ingrained vestiges of discrimination, 
the Senator says. He has co-authored 
every civil rights law passed in the last 
two 'decades to protect voting rights 
and civil rights and to prohibit job. 
housing and educational discrimina- 
tion, sponsored the law to remove the 
poll tax that prohibited many Southern 
Blacks from voting, consistently fought 
to protect the implementation of Brown 
vs Board of Education and co- 
sponsored the original Humphrey- 
Hawkins bill. 

Kennedv has held numerous 
hearings on health care issues affecting 
women and his proposal for National 
Health Insurance provides for 
income-related premiums, full benefits 
for children and continuous coverage 
. without regard to marital status or 
primarv wage earner. The Health Care 
for All' Americans Act. a comprehen- 
sive and universal program which he 
introduced to control escalating 
medical costs is one of his high points 
with the nations' elderly, whose 
medical costs are three times higher for 
people over 65 than younger people. 

Despite all the. criticism Kennedy 
receives about his private life, one 
thing that cannot be denied him is that 
he has been an effective influential and 
hard-working Senator. Carter's 
campaign staff has set out on what 
could be a hard task as they plan to hit 
Kennedy hard as an ineffective 
politician with no basic reason for 
running other than ambition. They also 
see an open door for criticism in his 
liberal voting record and their strategy 
includes painting Kennedy as a man 
who soesn't measure up to the stature 
of his brothers. . 

It still remains to be seen just ' who 
is going to whip who's what" in this 
battle for the Democratic nomination 
until the candidates start campaigning 
on some neutral ground. But Ted 
Kennedy is nipping awfully close to the 
President's heels, and still stands a 
good chance of overcoming him in the 
elections to come.

Mind Games 


Between sleep and stirring 
there came upon me a dream. 
In this dream, if dream it was, 
seven elephants mounted a 
stage. No sooner had they 
postured themselves than they 
were asked questions of great 
import and world shaking 
matters. As the first question 
was asked the seven elephants 
became six weasels and a 
man. I looked at the audience. 
No other seemed to have 
noticed the change. 

The weasels, wondrous, 
answered the questions with 
weasel words, Thereby gain- 
ing praise and applause. The 
man answered with coura- 
geous manly words and the 
people scorned and booed 

The weasel's words weie 
many and small in weight. The 
beasts sat firmly on their 
dignity. Though some know it 
by another name. The man, as 
men may do, stood with his 
pride. To me, he sounded 
fine... others heard him 
differently. I wonder why?

You gotta have Heart 

by Bill Meredith 

"In a lot of ways it's easier to be a woman in 
:ock" said Ann Wilson, Heart's lead vocalist, in 
a 1977 "Rolling Stone" interuew. "So many 
doors are open since we're new and different. I 
think I'll really like it when people stop thinking 
of us as a novelty... It'll be neat when it's more 
commonplace. ' ' 

Needless to say, women are now becoming 
quite common in rock and roll. Heart and the 
Wilson sisters, Ann and Nancy, have helped 
open doors for such rock women as Debbie 
Ham. Bonnie Raitt. and Patti Smith, even 
Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and Linda 

Great live shows have abounded since Heart's 
origin in the earlv '70's, but the main reason for 
their success is a string of fine albums - the fifth 
of which. "Bebe Le Strange", was released in 

"Bebe" is a good album, themusic is quality, 
no doubt about it. Only one thing is missing - 
lead guitarist Roger Fisher. It sounds like 
another Aerosmith storv, but, aside from 
helping write the title cut, Fisher is totally 
absent from this record, 

The most logical reason (you are given no 
explanation) would be his break-up with Nancy 
Wilson just prior to 1978's "Dog and Butterfly" ' 
album. The two had previously lived together in 
Seattle. s 

It's a shame Fisher left. An excellent young 
guitarist, his playing combined the elements of 
Page, Hendnx and Clapton into an interesting 
style. He will be heard from again. 

But give Heart credit, they didn't spend a lot 
of time sobbing - they didn't even look for a 
replacement. Nancy Wilson, a terror on acoustic 
guitar, is now expanding on the electric, and 
Howard Leese, also a keyboardist, picks up 
some of the lead guitar slack on the "Bebe" 

The title song opens side one, with biting 

lyrics that continue throughout much of the 

album. As well as singing the lead vocal, Ann 

W.lson plays tambourine and a funky bass - in 

tact, both of the sisters have increased their 

creative imohement on this LP 

"Down on Me" is a strong bluesy tune, 

something Heart rarely attempts. Nancy olavs 

rhythm guitar and mellotron, Howard Leese is 

on synthesizer and lead guitar, and drummer 

Michael Derosierdoes some excellent rolls 

"Silver Wheels" is Nancy's first acoustic 
guitar solo since "Fantasy Child" on the 1976 
"Dreamboat Annie" LP, and once again the 
lady triumphs. She is a true acoustic artist. 

"Bieak" is Heart's most upbeat rocker ever, 
surpassing even "Barracuda" in that category. 
Bassist Steve Fossen and drummer Derosier set 
a torrid pace, and Leese's backward guitar solo 
sounds like a violin - should be a great concert 

"Rockin' Heaven Down" is side one's 
weakest link. For nearly any other group this 
song would be solid, but Heart does a long jam 
with few lyrics on nearly every album, and this 
one sputters. Not a bad cut, just a predictable 

Side two opens with "Even it Up", the 
album's best track. The Tower of Power Horns 
make the song work, and Ann plays bass and 
sings a powerful vocal. Nancy shows her mettle 
too - playing lead guitar and doing a Pink 
Floyd-ish solo near the end. 

"'Strange Night" is enough to make your 
neighbors leave town. Schitzo drumming and 
buzzsaw guitar abound - it sounds like Hendrix 
at age ten. Not for the squeamish. 

"Raised on You" is "Bebe's" most pleasant 
surprise. Nancy plays the piano like Billy Joel, 
sings a lovely lead vocal, andalsoplays bass and 

"Pilot" and "Sweet Darlin" are the two 
mellow numbers which round out the album. 
The former is unspectacular, and the latter is a 
one-woman show. Ann one-ups her sister, doing 
lead vocal, acoustic guitar, piano, bass, drums, 
alto flute and tambourine. 

"Bebe Le Strange" is atransition album, and 
should be judged as such. There are no 
masterpieces here - no "Magic Man", "Love 
Alive", or "Magazine", but as a whole it is a 
solid package. 

This album doesn't show it, but Heart may 
eventually profit from the loss of Roger Fisher. 
Nancy Wilson has already proven herself an 
MVP, and the thought of her on electric guitar 
makes the Heart live show sound more 
appealing and exciting. 

Heart will be appearing in Hollywood on May 
2nd, and is not to be missed. Last February they 
melted the Sportatorium, and they reproduced 
their music as well as anyone in concert. 

"Bebe Le Strange" may not be Heart's best 
album, but it is still further proof that Ann and 
Nancy Wilson are the two most talented women 
in rock and roll.

And sa> its O.K. you'll pass somehow. 

And the teacher looks at you with a little grin, 

'Cause she knows about the fix your in. 

So you get the test and write your name, 

'Cause if you fail your the one to blame. 

Well your finally finished and you hand it in, 

And you look at the teacher with the same little grin, 

Your feeling good as you walk a way, 

And you say to yourself, "I think I got an A! ! '

Who came first? 

by Barbara Pedersen 
Staff Writer 

"In the beginning God created the 
heaven and the earth. And the earth was 
without form, and void; and darkness was 
upon the face of the deep... And God said, 
Let there be light.. .Let the earth bring 
forth grass... And God made the beast of 
the earth.. .And God said, Let us make 
man in our image..." 

Is this how it all really happened? 
Creationists think so. 

The PBJC Bible Club sponsored a 
seminar concerning the creationist's view 
of the universe, Feb. 29, in the auditorium 
from2to4p:m. * . 

Dr. Lane Lester, a professor of biology 
and lecturer of genetics at Liberty College 
in Lynchburg, Virginia, was one of the 
seminar speakers. 

Dr. Lester spoke of the theory of 
creation that concerns the idea that man 
and other life forms did not follow an 
evolutionary pathway, but rather were 
solely created by God in one great act. 

According to Lester, "Creation has 
more evidence than evolution," and 
"Creation makes better sense that 

He discussed scientific areas that 
support evolution as interpreted and 
disproved by creationists. 

One of the areas included taxonomy, the 
assignment of names to groups of 
creatures that have descended from 
common ancestors. "Evolution does not 
support this theory," exclaimed Lester. 

He also discussed homology, an area of 
science that deals with similarity of bone 
structures in different animals that are 
thought to have had a common origin. 

Evolution state, that these like beings 
descended from common ancestors. To 
evolutionists this -seems logical, but, 
creationists feel that 'this cannot be so,' 
lester pointed out. 

"When an architect discovers a good 
design that works well, he repeats it in 
other buildings. So the same in structures 
of the body that seem to work well." 

Concerning the intricate design of cells, 
"Many believe that they are self 
originating, but... the evidence is much 
stronger that this incredible design 
required an inventor (God)." 

Again, the creationists believe that 
everything was created seperately, did not 
evolve, and that "a well functioning 

design" was repeated in the creation of 
man and other life forms, 

So which came first, the chicken or the 
egg? God only knows? The search goes on 
and on, and on.,.

A fragment is what they see.

Looking up into the blackness.

A few seen stars, a few seen planets. 
There must be more.

Yankees to recapture AL East 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

The following predictions 
for the American League East 
for the 1980 season. 

1. New York Yankees - After 
a year filled with injuries and 
traumas, the New Yorkers 
are back on top again. 

The Yanks injury list 
included: Ed Figueroa, Rich 
Gossage, Reggie Jackson, 
Don Gullett, and the list goes 

Pick-ups of stars Ruppert 
Jones, Rudy May, Tom 
Underwood, Rick Cerone and 
Bob Watson will bolster an 
already all-star loaded team. 
All the Yanks had to give up 
to acquire the above players 
were Chris Chambliss and 
Jim Beattie. There were 
thoughts about giving up 
Chambliss, but Jim Spencer 
hit 25 home runs in just over 
300 at bats last season. 

The Yankees are lead by 
20 game winner Tommy 
John, slugger Reggie 
Jackson, all leading ERA 
pitcher Ron Guidry, and slick 
fielder Graig Nettles. 

It's World Series time 
again in New York for 1980. 

2. Milwaukee Brewers - If it 

""-Wasn't for the powerful 
Yankees, the Brewers would 
run away with the division. 

Hitting is super. The 
Brewers were second in the 
league last year in home 
runs, lead b\ league leadei 
Gorman Thomas, Cecil 

Cooper, Sixto Lezcano and 
Larry Hisle. 

The Milwaukee pitching is 
strong, but not strong 
enough. Bill Travers, Larry 
Sorenson and Jim Slaton are 
all capable of winning 20 
games, but have not done so 
yet. There are no first class 
bullpen artists for the 
Brewers, and that will hurt. 

3. Boston Red Sox - Pitching 
and Carlton Fisk are big 
question marks. The Sox 
staff is lead by Dennis 
Eckersley, Mike Torrez and 
Bob Stanley. Beyond the 
three starters, there are 
average pitcheis, injured 
hurlers, and rookie arms. 
Bill Campbell will again be 
out for the year. The Red Sox 
signed injured reliever Skip 
Lockwood; Lockwood missed 
almost the entire season last 

The league leading home 
run hitting club, is lead by 
superstars Fred Lynn, Jim 
Rice, Tony Perez and Carl 
Yastrezemski. Butch Hobson 
may be traded to bring in a 
first class pitchei. 

4. Baltimore Orioles - No 

more tricks are going to be 
pulled out of the hat by Earl 
Weaver. Last season, all the 
O's players had their best 
seasons ever, all at once. 

A starting team lead by a 
.239 hitting third baseman 
(Doug DeCinces), a lifetime 
.210 hitting shortstop (Mark 
Belangei). and platooning in 

two key spots in the lineup 
(leftfield and second base), is 
not good enough this 
upcoming season in the best 
division in baseball. 

The pitching, lead by 
future hall of famer Jim 
Palmer, Scott McGregor and 
Mike Flanagan is good, but 
too many young arms will 
have to be used to close up 
the gap left by now Dodger, 
Don Stanhouse. 

The hitting is lead by 
Eddie Murray and Ken 

5. Detroit Tigers - The Tigers 
are a fine young team, and 
are starting to move up to the 
top. Young stars like Dave 
Rozema, Lou Whitaker, 
Steve Kemp and Jason 
Thompson, give the Tigers a 
big future. 

The trade of Ron LeFlore 
has to hurt, but Kurt Gibson 
is a highly regarded 
prospect. A permanent 
fixture is needed in the 
bullpen since John Hiller is 
coming to the end of his 
career. A comeback by Mark 
Fidrych would help the 
Tigers ttemendously. 

6. Cleveland Indians - In 

what other division but the 
AL East could a team play 
.500 ball, and end up in the 
bottom of the standings? It 
will probably happen again 
this year. 

The Indians have many 
stars m their lineup; Jorge 
Ota, Duane Kuipei, Rick 

But then we 'd be undefeated

An annual pmblem at PBJC is the academic 
ehgibtlm of the basketball plavers. Every 
season as fall term grades aie calculated, you 
can be sine of at least three of four players 
losing their eligibility . 

Well, I have a solution to this problem, which 
if it catches on, will make coaches, as well as 
players and fans happy in all colleges that adopt 
this theory. The rules are very simple: any 
student who plays basketball for the college will 
teceive an automatic passing grade, assuming 
he comes to class a minimum of one day per 
term. If he attends class on two occasions, a 
"B" grade is recommended. For three days, a 
' 'C ' grade is the standard. 

It is also possible not to go to class at all, and 
teceive a top grade. To do this you must be a 
starter on, the team and also pass the dunking 
test. I call this the Greg Jackson Proposal. 
Players are expected to hang out in the 
cafeteria, lounge and the gym while not 
attending class 

Going one step further, to recruit the highest 
degree of talent, the coach will have the power 
to recruit players from ghetto street corners and 
give them full scholarships, whether they %vent 
to high school or not. Tins is the Enrie Morris 

Through the use of these two Proposals, 
PBJC basketball as well as other sports will 
achieve the highest degree of recognition on the 
college level.

Lady Pacers are red hoi 

by Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC softball team won 6 out of its last 7 games, to bring 
its current season record to 6 and 4. 

The team beat Edison 12-5, Manatee 3-0, Valencia 6-4, 
Bioward Central 11-1, and Miami Dade New World Center 9-7 
and 2-0 in their streak. 

Coach John Anderson feels that his players are improving with 
every game, but, there are just no excuses for losing. Anderson 
says that his team is a little off their stride at the moment. 
"Pitcher Treva Thompson isn't pitching well and I have shifted 
some players around. Lisa Turdo and Pat Di Menna, who were 
both outfielders, are now playing shortstop and second base, 
while second baseman Jane Williams has been moved to the short 
fielder's position. Right now though, our main problem of concern 
is hitting the ball. 

Carol "Bebo" Olsen is our best hitter at the moment, and 
Carolyn Cowden, normally our best hitter, is choking at the plate 
and not moving the base runners. Pat Di Menna is in a slump, and 
Linda Coyne is an off and on hitter with no consistency", 
explained Anderson 

The Pacers are on the road traveling to Lake City for a 
tournament to be played March 7 and 8.

also thinks that this year's 
tennis team will do better

Victory pays off in millions 

by Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

"1 am excited sincerely that PBJC is really 
now known to the citi?ens," replied Dr. Edward 
M. Eissey after hearing that PBJC's half mill 
proposal had passed. 

More than 150 people gathered at the 
American-Polish Club in Lake Worth to 
celebrate the expected victory. "The fact that 
we got our students, faculty and staff behind us 
was a factor. Probably one of the strongest 
factors was the senior citizen's support," 
explained Eissey at the celebration party. 

The approved referendum will bring in nearly 

$9 million to the college. The money, according 
to administrators, will only be used for repairs. 
Roofs, parking lots, and wiring are some of the 
items slated for lepair. It will also be used for 
leplacement of outdated equipment, notably in 
the dental hygiene department. 

The problems with the voting computet s did 
not damper the feeling of Eissey, "As of now, it 
looks like we aie on our way to victory," he 
commented about the eminent win. 

At the time of the breakdown, the leferendum 
was winning by a two to one margin. The polls 
showed a 2465 to 1201 difference with 5 of the 
precincts teporting in. 








VICTORY-Palm Beach Junior College staff and faculty members were waiting for election 
returns at a Victory celebration held at the American-Polish Club election night. Although they 
didn't know for sure that the PBJC Referendum had passed 56-44 until almost 24 hours later, the 
group was hopeful. Shown are Dr. G. Tony Tate [left] PBJC vice president for business affairs, 
and chairman of the Milage Committee, who was also celebrating his birthday that night. Marge 
Carroll, PBJC Finance Office, and Dr. Edward M. Eissey, PBJC president, who led the singing 
of "Happy Birthday" to Tate. Eissey and Tate spoke and gave 221 slide presentations to 
organizations in the county in the effort to pass the successful referendum. 

News analysis// Afganistan and you 

Staff Writer 

What happens next? At this 
articular stage of the events that have 
mfolded since January it is almost 
impossible to determine as to what any 
tfus can expect in the upcoming weeks 
Mid months. 

It is impossible in the sense that 
tawing sudden conclusions such as 
^here will be a war in the Persian Gulf 
iver oil" or "Afghanistan itself will 
Irentually be reshaped into a neutral 
itory' ' are observations that cannot 
« immediately proven. 

Certainly additional questions of 
iort and long term consequences are 
Nany, and are quite difficult to answer. 

Perhaps any of the above could be 
snsidered in light of yet another 
|uestion--Is history repeating itself? 

To formulate any sort of a theory, we 
jpjst break our question into two parts: 

If history is repeating itself, how is it 
doing so, and, can any consequences at 
present be pinpointed? 

Perhaps a close examination of the 
headlines of the pre- World War II era, 
let's say between 1938 and 1939, can 
reveal striking similarities to the news 
and information that we are being fed 
now. And if it's at all possible, what 
about lending an ear to the radio 
broadcasts Of that time? In them, as 
well as the articles that were printed 
then, are an air of gloom, caution, and 
fear that accompany the news now. 

Somewhere in the background we 
can here similarities between Franklin 
Delano Roosevelts "Do not worry 
mothers, I will not send your boys to 
war on any foreign soil" and Jimmy 
Carter's "Anti-Draft youth is over- 
reacting to my call for registration for 
the military draft." 

In other places there seems to exist a 

similarity between the 1936 occupation 
of the Rhine by Adol Hitler's German 
forces and a United Press International 
release dated March 10th: "Defense 
sources in Washington say they expect 
an extra twenty-five to thirty thousand 
Soviet troop reinforcements to pour 
into Afghanistan within the month. 
There are reports of a second major 
offensive against Moslem -guerillas in 
the eastern rebel-held providence ' of ' 

If these similarities retain any 
meaning then they cannot be ignored 
nor forgotten. 

It's true that we can make 
comparisons until we have run out of 
breath, but as it stands now (after 
looking at results of Gallup and Harris 
polls) one thing can perhaps be 
determined immediately-there is a 
staunch feeling of conservatism at it's 
height. With this feeling comes a loss 

of memory, as far as having learned 
anything from the lessons of history is 

What makes a supposition such as 
this more important is the unfortunate 
fact that we are living in a nuclear age. 
Maybe-it is true that history as well as 
mankind swings back and forth on a 
pendulum-and perhaps in the long run 
mankind t has not changed^ m as „ k w,e K 
tliought he* did* after 'the Vietnam War. 
One thing that has changed are his 
explosive and devastating methods of 

Somehow, some of us have lost sight 
of that even though we may know 
what's next.

Walkers not worth a dime 

Out of the goodness of their hearts, 
some 5000 Palm Beach County 
residents participated in the March of 
Dimes Waikathon on Saturdav, March 

The walk started and ended at 
Howard Park in West Palm Beach, 
drifting as tar north as 35 rh Street and 
as far south as Forest Hill Boulevaid -

there for the duration. 

Estimates on the amount ot money 
earned are varied. Some walkers had 
pledged for as much as $250 and S300, 
but the average probably settled 
around S25-S50. Still, the "March of 
Dimes walked away with $200,000. 

And an organization that makes that 
much money should treat the walkers

Participants were treated to free

Gas prices 
Hurting politics 

Most Americans these days are quick to access the seriousness 
of the popular theory that gasoline prices are skyrocketing and 
that this may be the direct effect of political activities^from the 
White House right on down the line. But something else* is 
beginning to show up which is going to turn; around and smack 
these ambitious politicians right in the can: the price of gasoline is 
directly effecting the political process in this election year. 

It really takes a lot of fuel to get a candidate elected. With the 
price per gallon approaching $1 .50, it also takes a lot more money 
than it ever did. Consider the things that have to get done it a 
candidate even wants to scratch at a party nomination. 

To start with, he has to take his platform to the voters This can 
entail anything from talking at crowds in his home town to flying 
half way across the nation to introduce himself to strangers. Wait 
a minute... fly'Mt's going to get expensive. The price oi jet fuel is 
consistently raised one cent per gallon every week, and major 
airlines aren't going to be lowering their prices faced with that 
kind of weekly fuel cost hike. 

And it's not just the candidate himself who gives those 
out-of-town speeches. It's many of his supporters, too. People 
who feel that a candidate is worth enough to this country that if he 
can't make the speeches himself, they'll make some of them for 

And who pays for all of this? Well, you may think that it's the 
candidate s electron committee, but you're probably wrong. More 
times than not it comes straight from the supporter's own pocket, 
and it s going to become harder to find die-hard supporters who 
can keep up with 20 percent inflation rates. 

It's going to be; even find good, old-fashioned grass 
roots volunteer^ to keep up. The fact is that volunteers for 
candidates are already lagging behind past -years, and a major 
factor in this decrease is that many of them simply can't afford it. 
They can t afford to take time off work; they can't afford to shuttle 
visiting campaigners around town; they can't afford to drive to 
campaign headquarters that are more than a few blocks from their 
homes; they simply can't afford to waste the gasoline involved. 

An example of this showed up in the Palm Beach County on 
March 11. A part of almost any campaign is providing 
transportation to the polls for the sick, the elderly, the poor and so 
on. This year that service was a farce. Very few people were 
willing to pump $40 into their tanks and out of their pockets to 
drive back and forth from the polls all Jay. It would be safe to say 
that manypeopledidn'tvotebecauseofthisproblem. 

Tliese are just two surface problems. It would take extensive 
research to figure out how rising oil prices affect other aspects of 
campaigning, like printing bumperstickers, flyers, position 
papers and letterheads; distribution of materials and on and on. 

it's something for our politicians to think about. If they want 
our help in an election, they're going to have to watch out for our 
pockets, or they'll be back to old-fashioned whistle stop tours in

Mavbc that 's the idea, 

At this writing, we do not as 
yet know the outcome of our 
millage election; however, 
since I am leaving for

business. I am taking this

the entire community, and in 
so many ways ma de personal 
contacts for their college, our 
deepest appreciation. I have

that we have the greatest 
students in the whole United 
States, and you have 
reaffirmed that during our

Alice in Jazzland 

by Bill Meredith 


"The backstage workers are the unsung 
heroes of the theatre" commented Sunny 
Meyer, director of the upcoming musical "Alice 
in Jazzland." 

Unsung, indeed. While the actors and 
directors are praised for a successful 
production, the stage crews go quietly on their 
way, receiving minimal praise. 

But with "Alice", slated for pioduction 
March 26-29, everyone involved is experiencing 
crew work, whether in the cast or not. This is a 
requirement of Ms. Meyer for her Children's 
Theatre class. 

And many of the participants are involved in 
more than one facet of production work. Student 
directois Rita Dufiey, Scotl Thompson, and 
Willy Roan aic all dually involved, Rita and 
Scotr with lighting and Willy with set 

The lighting crew is rounded out by Joey 
Puliot, Li/ Munav, Preston Kemp (playing the 
King in "Alice"), and Mary Peak (Duchess! 

Set decoration included Mark Kramer, 
Maigaret Kjlmei, Danny Baihuber, Kemp, 
Duftey, Lynn Gastmeyer, John Papsidera, 
David" Sender (Knave), Gwen Jones (Cook), 
John Fayssoux (White Rabbit), and Jeff 
Livengood (Fiog). 

The ushers, Mary Beth Irwin, Pamela 
Johnson, Deanne Kepple, and Stephanie Ward, 
will be dressed as musical dancing notes for the 

production dates. All four young ladies are also 
involved in costume design and make-up. 

Others involved in costuming and make-up 
include Karne Swedenborg, Susie Urizar, 
Kramer, Murray, Lisa Adams, Tina Doummar, 
Joy Stein (Gryphon), Randy Bradshaw 
(Tweedledee), and Danny Stewart (Tweedle- 
dum), Michael Coppola (Catterpillar), Valerie 
Bourgeous (Red Queen), and Terri Byers 

Those who will be backstage working the 
props on production nights are Shawn Mullinix, 
Gary Yoik, Brian O'Conner, Adams and 

Mailing flyers, and tacking up posters is also 
a full-time job. The publicity committee consists 
of Lynn Tuckwood, Katie Johnson, Bjll 
Mciedith, Gary Messick (March Hare), and 
Carolyn Breder (White Queen), Baihuber, York, 
Sendci , Coppola, Jones, Kepple and Kilmet. 

The set was designed by Tracey Riddle 
(Turtle), Dai urn DcPeahul (Maid HaUei), and 
Fayssoux. All were under the guidance of chief 
set designci AitlmrMusto. 

Original music has also been written by Robin 
Holland (Alice/Dormouse), Fayssoux, and 

And last but not least, Mrs. Kathy Jo 
Campbell is the musical's choreogvaphei . 

"We couldn't have a play without the crews" 
says Ms. Meyer. "They are equally important to 
the actors on stage, and most people don't 
realize that fact. ' '

Billy Joel breaking into New Wave 

by Barbara Pedersen 
Staff Writer 

It all began in Hackensack, 
New Jersey, where Billy Joel 
emerged from an amateur 
boxer into a serious musician. 

He started playing in New 
York piano bars and a few 
years later released his first 
album, "Cold Spring 
Harbour". Unfortunately, 
from a record sale standpoint 
" it did not 'do tod well and went ' 
out of circulation. However, 
the talented Billy Joel went on 
anyway and in 1973 "Piano 
Man" was released. 

Since then he has put out 
some incredible masterpieces 
such as "Turnstiles", "The 
Sti anger", "52nd Street", 
and now his latest, "Glass 
Houses" that mainly captures 
the New Wave sound. 

Is new wave rock and roll? 
Well, Billy Joel feels it is and 
his album expresses this in an 
interesting way in numbers 
such as "Sometimes a 

Fantasy." This song 
emphasizes perpetual power- 
ful punk throughout to the 
point lyrics and punk plucked 
bassy electric guitars make 
this tune a real ear catcher. 

Also, in "It's Still Rock and 
Roll To Me", Joel expresses 
his views of new wave when he 
says, "Everybody's talkin' 
'bout the new sound/Funny 
but it's still rock and roll to 
me. ..It's the next phase, new 
wave, dance craze, anyways/ 
It's still rock and roll to me/. 

Many critics believe that 
new wave is just another 
phase of rock and roll. 
However, Billy Joel has 
adapted his many versatile 
styles to the new wave sound 
and has given it the potential 
of being more than a quick 
passing fad-rock. 

He has maintained his 
superb instrumentation in the 
NW numbers. This is 
something that many other 
NW artists are lacking in. 

Yes, some of his lyrics 

sound like a typical song by 
the Ramones, but what "piano 
man" intended here was pure 
mimicry delivered in a 
powerful tone, 

Consider these lyrics of 
"You Maybe Right": "I've 
been stranded in the combat 
zone... /Even rode my motor- 
cycle in the rain.. ./But I made 
it home alive/So you said that 
only proves that I'm insane/" 
Brilliant melodramatization of 
new wave! 

But, then other songs such 
as "Don't Ask Me Why", "All 
For Leyna", "C'etait Toi (You 

Were The One)", and 
"Through The Long Night" 
are anything but new wave. 

In fact, most of them have 
very enchanting moods to 
them such as "Thorugh The 
Long Night' ' that sounds like a 
soft and subtle Paul 
McCartney tune. 

"You Were The One", a 
semi-french lyric song is sung 
and written in a somewhat 
romantic tone that gives it 
effective character. 

There is also some hard core 
rock and roll shown in "Close 
To The Borderline" with its 

ripsnorting lyrics and exciting 
guitar backup done by David 
Brown, a new lead guitarist. 

The song holds a few whitty 
remarks: "The no. nukes yell 
we're gonna all go to 
hell/With the next big 
meltdown/I've got a remote 
control color T.V./I don't 
change channels so they must 
change me/". 

Glass Houses is another 
work by Billy Joel in which he 
has proved again that he 
cannot be neatly fitted into me 
single musical niche, foi his 
album expresses all of them

The art of losing 

by Angee Morris 

Staff Writer 
Why is winning everything? After attempting 
several sports, and mastering none, I ask this 
constantly. It never fails to happen that 
whenever I play a game, such as tennis or 
racquetball, my team mate or opponent not only 
plays to win, but also to kill Competition is so 
thick in the air that one can smell it. There is life 
after losing, and I'm living testimony to that. 
So, why must every challenge be a fight to the 

This business of pulverizing one's opponent 
in order to gain an air of superiority totally 
eludes me. It would appear that there is no such 
thing as a "friendly game" of tennis or 
whatever. So what if my opponent wipes the 
court with me? Does this make him a better 
person -- or worse yet, does it make me a lesser 
one? If there is no prize awaiting the winner, 
why not relax and enjoy one's self? 

Granted, there are times when winning is to 
one's advantage. For instance, I hardly think 
that Tracy Austin steps on a tennis court with 
anything but success on her mind. She's playing 
for money, and I can understand that. It is also 
within my realm of understanding why, during 
an operation, it would be a definate asset to 
have a surgeon that has never lost a patient. 
Both examples have justifyable goals. But, 
where there is neither money nor life at stake, it 
is my contention that sports and games should 
be attempted only for the mere pleasure of the 

It seems that blind ambition has taken the 
place of fun in our society. Our generation 
appears to believe the philosophy that states 
that winning is everything and losing nothing. 
For this to work, that is, in order for winners to 
exist, so, also must losers. Not everyone can be 
first; however, being second or las', or 
anywhere in between is not so bad. The 
important thing is to have a place. 

Something wrong on Saturn 3 

Wade Brown showing off his window washing technique. 


Does the name Wade Brown 
ring a bell with anyone? 
Probably not, however, this 
man-about-campus is a 
familiar face to PBJC'ers. He 
can usually be found wearing a 
black cap on his head, and 
mirrored sunglasses. 

Wade is seen five days a 
week, usually washing the 
windows of the campus. 
Anyone spotting his supply 
cart on wheels and ladder 
knows Wade can't be too far 

Cleaning the glass work at 
over 20 stations. Wade says 
he's pretty much free in 
choosing which windows he 
will do on a particular day. 
Jokingly asking if he found the 
Beachcomber windows the 
most time-consuming he 
related that the science 
building takes the longest to 
; do.

Vei'i pride in soaping is Dr,

'F.ssev Street once a week 
because I want to make the big 
'-ian shine," he laughingly 
, admits. 

During his 3 years of 
employment here, Wade has 
grown to meet many students 
and factuly members alike. 
His day is brightened when he 
is approached by someone 
who talks and jokes around 
with him. "1 didn't want to 
give anybody the impression 
that I'm stuck-up, so that's 
why 1 make it a point to talk 
with everyone," he says, 
displaying his great sense of 

When he is not engaging in 
two of his favorite pastimes,

some rays, Wade makes his 
way to Palm Beach and climbs 
those great big penthouses in 
the sky to wash the windows.

Something Is Wrong On 
SATURN 3,...This is part of 
the ad campaign for the new 
movie Saturn 3. After sitting 
through this film, the 
consensus is that it's star 
(Farrah Fawcett) is the 
"thing" that's wrong on 
Saturn 3. However, this writer 
was able to spot quite a 
number of other things that 
were "wrong" on Saturn 3. 

To being with, the plot must 
have been devised by someone 
other than a sane adult, for 
this person threw believability 
right out the window! The 
story takes place in the future. 
Saturn 3 is a food producing 
aircraft located somewhere in 
space and manned by Farrah 
Fawcett and Kirk Douglas, 
who just happen to be lovers. 
Harvey Keitel is sent to Saturn 
3 to sort of step up production 
with a new-fangled robot. 
Now, this is the unbelievable 
part. This robot need not be 
mechanically programmed. 
Oh. no, for this robot has a 
brain of it's own. It's brain is 
blank until Keitel puts his own 
thoughts into it's brain via an 
adapter, much like that of a

headponejack. In other words, 
whatever Harvey thinks, so 
too will the robot. Guess 
what's on Harvey's mind? 
Nothing but lust for Farrah. 
Hence, the robot also lusts 
after Ms. Fawcett. (It is yet to 
be figured out what the robot 
will do with her once he gets 
her, though, for he's made of 
metal.) The robot's emotions 
soon begin to run away with 
him and he kills Keitel, and 
imprisons Douglas and 
Fawcett. Douglas, in an effort 
to be heroic, blows up both 

himself and the robot with a 
bomb, and Ms. Fawcett is left 
to fend for herself, alone. 

Farrah Fawcett appears to 
be in a contest with herself, for 
she tops her own bad acting 
with each new film. Douglas 
and Keitel, both highly 
acclaimed actors, did an 
adequate job considering what 
they had to work with. Not 
surprisingly, after a few 
seemingly endless weeks, this 
movie is playing nowhere

Sports Editorials 

Who is to blame? It's the owners fault 

In 1935, when the salarv of Babe Ruth was raised to 
more than that of President Franklin Roosevelt, the 
citizens of the United States were outraged. In the 
year 1980, athletics are by far, one of the highest 
paid pr« Sessions in the world. Many of these men 
and women have spent many long and hard years of 
their lives in training-with no rewards. Nonetheless, 
when baseball player Dave Parker was recently signed 
to a long term contract at one million dollars per year, 
it leads one to wonder whether these men are really 
worth the high price tag. 

High salaries cause unbelievable jumps in ticket 
prices. No longer are middle class American families 
able to spend more than one day a week attending a 
professional sporting event. If there is anyone to put 
the blame on, it may be the billionaire owners who try 
to outbid each other seeking a championship team. 

It is still too early to tell whether or not the greed 
that has hit professional sports in the mid-1970's will 
ultimately destroy the games, but there are .any 
indicators pointing in this direction. As inflation 
affects everything these days, it must also affect 
professional sports. 

Although team sport personalities receive more 
publicity, individual athletes are also people collecting 
mamy millions. Golfers Jack Nicklaus and Arnold 
Palmer, tennis stars Jimmy Conner and Chris Evert, 
and many more like them can make thousands of 
dollars for just one day's work. 
I The winnings and high .salaries are destroying the 
"games which Vsed" WB We™* AS -*heer 
enjoyment of the sport. No longer are there teams, but 
huge multi-million-dollar enterprises geared for only 
one thing: making more and more money. ' 

No longer do athletes play sports for the love of the 
game. They play tor the love of money. The four major 
professional sports: baseball, basketball, football and 
hockey, arc gold mines for budding young athletes to 
shoor for. Major League Baseball, Basketball, 
Football and Hockev grossed over 800 million'dollars 
in 1 9~M. 

The big money ttend originated in I960 when the 
upstart American Football League challenged the 
National hoot ball League in an ail-out money war tor 
talent. Beiorc 1960, onlv baseball plavers were under 
contract lor 5100,000 a year. A tev\ years later, the 
American Baketball Association challenged the 
National Basketball Association lor its players. 

More recently ./the typM Hockey Association and 
the now-defunct World Football League helped 
increase salaries in all professional sports. The cause 

in all of these sports can be traced to expansion. The 
upstart leagues challenged the established leagues for 
talent and raised the salaries in the process. 

Of these leagues, the AFL merged with the NFL in 
1970; the ABA ran out of money in 1975; the WFL 
lasted only two years, folding in 1976; and the WHA 
went defunct one year later, 

The high salaries granted to big-name college 
athletes really got rolling in 1964 when the New York 
Jets of the AFL landed Joe Namath of Alabama for 
$427,000 per year. It was an astonishing figure then, 
but it was only the beginning. At least 400 players in 
the four major sports now make at least $100,000. This 
does not include fringe benefits such as gifts like 
automobiles and homes, insurance policies and 
lifetime employment. 

David Thompson, a professional basketball player, 
makes $800,000 a year. In 1954, the salary of the 
NBA's players combined was $800,000. This shows 
how salaries have escalated with the recent trend 
toward agents who negotiate contracts and movie or 
television packages. 

In 1975, it was written that baseball was the only 
one of the four major team sports to avoid a big-money 
war. That all came to an end when in 1976, Andy 
Messersmith of the Los Angeles Dodgers signed a 
three-year-contract for Si million with the Atlanta 
Braves which included a no-cut, no-trade 
arrangement. This opened the gates for the great 
baseball sweepstakes. 

In July of 1976, Charles O. Finley, the owner of the 
Oaklarfd Athletics-, ' stripped his team of three 
superstars by selling them for a total ofS3.5mi!lion. 
Finley sold Joe Rudiand Rollie Fingers to the Boston 
Red Sox for SI million each and Vida Blue to the New 
York Yankees for $1.5 million. The three did not sign 
contracts and were scheduled to become free agents 
at the conclusion of the season. 

The Messersmith case eliminated the 89-year-old 
reserve clause which binded a player to one team for 
life. Finley commented that he would not let these 
athletes drive him into bankruptcy with their salary 

Upon hearing of these sales, Baseball 
Commissioner Bowie Kuhti cancelled the deals, 
prompting Finley to file a S10 million lawsuit against 
Kuhn which he eventually lost In October of 1970, 
Maior League Baseball held it's first "re-entry" draft 
of tree agent players. All of the players who refused to 
sign with the ball club tor which they played were free 
to be literally bought by the highest bidder. 

There were twenty-four of these players available 

with Reggie Jackson becoming the highest paid player 
as a result of his li\ e-year, $3 million contract with the 
New York Yankees, in addition, Wayne Garland and 
Joe Rudi received ovei two million dollars each. 
Jackson admitted he now played the game tor only the 

Charlie Finley echoed the opinion of many when he 
called the free agent draft "the worst thing that has 
ever happened to baseball," Finley does not blame 
the players; he thinks the blame lies with the owners. 
What is ironic is most of these high priced superstars 
did not help the teams that they joined. Gene Autry, 
owner of the California Angels, spend $5.3 million for 
three free agents in 1977, hoping for a division 
championship. His team finished fifth. In 1977, Autry 
acquired Lyman Bostock for S2.4 million. The Angels 
finished second and Bostock was killed in a tragic 
accident. Recently, Autry signed Rod Carew for 
$900,000 a year, Carew is now expected to lead the 
Angels to a championship. 

Only the New York Yankees have benefited from 
the free agent bonanza as they have won two world 
championships but spent millions of dollars, The 1979 
Yankees had seven former free agents on their squad. 

Almost all through history owners have taken 
advantage of athletes. The athletes are now getting 
what they deserve but it has gotten out of hand and 
the fans are paying the price. Many factors have led to 
this increase in pay. Television revenuse, expansion, 
formation of new leagues, expansion of schedules and 
legal fees arejusl a few. " • 

Former NBA player and general manager Wayne 
Embry says "basketball is now a multi-million-dollar 
business. The owners are destroying it." After 
sixteen years with the Cincinnati Reds, Pete Rose 
played out his option and signed with the Philadelphia 
Phillies for 3.2 million dollars over four years. Rose 
proclaimed he was the number one player in the game 
and wanted to be paid like number one. 

Almost total blame for the rise in salary can be 
plated upon the owners. They were so thrifty for so 
Sony they forced athletes to form unions. Now they 
ha\e gone completely the other way. The owners can 
ahVd to pay the athletes as long as people pay the 
ticket prices or bin the products that pay for the 
television presentations. 

There is no way to reverse the trend in professional 
sports; it will have to solve itself. When people stop 
paying outlandish prices, maybe the owners will 
realize .what they are doing and refuse to pay their 
athletes incredible figures. 

Sportswriters should only cover the game 

Every story has two sides, 
as has been said many times 
before. A sports editorial in an 
earlier issue, concerning 
confrontations between 

athletes and sportswriters, 
condemned the ahtlete. But 
the writer has to receive at 
least half the blame. 

Palm Beach Post columnist 

Steve Mitchell may have said 

.it best, "The best way to 

I boycott th.- Summer Olympic 

. Games 'wuuid be 'to "send the 

nation's spoils writers to 


Sportswriters are paid to 
cover sports - nothing else. 
Divorces, pergonal problems, 
management, and salaries are 
not sports, and need not be 
reported. In what other 
occupation is a person's salary 
made public for the world to 
see? None, not even in 

•j"! j>«< r\u-' ,-■ ■ \ ' '•■ 
Hollywood. Many sports- 
writers should be writing for 
the 'National Enquirer" 

There has to be a degree of 
jealousy involved. A sports- 
writer may make $20,000 per 
vear to the professional 
athlete's $100,000. but when 
you compare the occupations 
and the risks involved, you 
realize -that, the salaries are 
proportioned correctly. 

Imagine playing. 82 games 
of pro basketball, many one 
day after another. Or 162 
games of pro baseball. Or 
twenty or so consecutive 
Sundays of butting heads with 
Lambert, Campbell, Csonka, 
and Greene in pro football. 
And these are just the games, 
not to mention the numerous 
practices and pre-season. 
Professional athletes earn 

their money - it's a lot tougher 
than itlooks on 'television. 

Of course, there are a few 
exceptions, but journalism can 
always counter with the 
world's richest moron, 
Howard Cosell. It works both 

Apologies go out to the 
sportswriters of the nation 
who actually do their jobs 
correctly, however, few. 
• Today's athelere may- want to 
see his name in print, but he 
wants to see it there justly. 

Athletes don't ask about 
sportswriters personal lives, 
so the athlete deserves the 
same treatment. It is the 
writers who instigate the 
conflict, and it is this conflict 
that both sports and 
journalism would be better off 

Hope you didn 't take it seriously 

It should be known that the basketball article hi 'last week's 
Beachcomber is purely satirical and was in no way meant to 
degrade or libel the two athletes mentioned in the story. 

The satire was designed to point out the troubles now 
surfacing in college athletics across the country. The New 
Mexico scandal in which players were given credit for classes 
they did not attend has opened many people's eyes to this 
growing trend. Until someone cracks down (are you listening, 
NCAA?) on the ever increasing Watergate-type activities in 
college sports, the whole system will be in grave danger. 

Although nothing this scandalous has happened at PBJC, 
it very well could and that is what the satire pointed out. Any 
connection between Mr. Morris and Mr. Jackson, and any of 
the facts in the story is purely coincidental.

NCAA Playoffs 

by Jim Hayward 
Staff Writer 

The NCAA Basketball playoffs are in full swing with an 
enlarged field and no solid favorite among the 48 teams who 
began play on March 6th. 

Number one ranked DuPaul was knocked off by once-powerful 
UCLA in the west regional. Marquette, Notre Dame, and 
Arkansas were also upset in the opening roungs. There will be 
many more upsets before the final four square off at market 
Square Arena in Indianapolis on March 22-24. 

Last year's championship was action packed with Michigan 
State and Inidna State clashing in Salt Lake City. Larry Bird and 
Magic Johnson, now NBA stars, shined brightly in a head to 
head duel. Defending champ Michigan St., along with the 
Sycamores and runners-up Penn and DePaul will all be absent 
from this year's final. 

Individual stars who have led their teams to the top include 
Albert King of Maryland, Mark Agguire of DePaul, Carroll of 
Purdue, Duke's Mike Giminski and Gene Banks, Kyle Macy of 
Kentucky, Indiana's Mike Woodson, Darrell Griffith of 
Louisville, Durand Macklin and DeWayne Scales of LSU, 
Virginia's 7*-4" freshman Ralph Sampson, LaSalle's Michael 
Brooks, John Stroud of Mississippi, and Ohio State's Kelvin 
Ransey and Herbie Williams. 

Candidates for coach of the year include Ray Meyer of 
DePaul, UCLA's Larry Brown, Dale Brown of LSU, Indiana's 
Bobby Knight, Lefty Driesell of Maryland, Ohio State's Eldon 
Miller and Kentucky's Joe Hall. 

Next week's Beachcomber will provide a rundown of the final 
four teams and our selection of the 1980 national champion.

by Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

The Pacer baseball team won five games in a 
row to boost their overall record to 18-10 and 
their conference total to 6-5 in division IV play. 
The Pacers beat Miami-Dade South twice, 7-6 
and 6-2; Miami New World Center 5-1; Indian 
River 4-2 and 10-9 last week. 

In game one against Dade South, Catcher 
Vern Manz led the way by going 3 for 4 to give 
the Pacers left hander Jeff Etsell his first victory 
of the year. The Pacers played Dade South again 
and won 6-2. First basemen Tom Krupa hit 
the cycle in that game with a double, single, 
triple, and home run to drive in 5 of the Pacers 6 
runs Greg Root hit a double in the game for the 
only other extra base hit. Jeff Morgan got the 
victory with the help of relief pitcher Frank 

The Pacers traveled to Miami to play Miami 
New World Center and won 5-1. Tom Krupa's 
two run homer and David Lowe's two doubles 
led the Pacers to victory. 

The Pacers baseball team defeated the 
Pioneers 10-9 at Indian Rivier in 11 innings. The 
Pacers leading 8-1 at one point, watched the 
Pioneers score 8 runs in 3 innings. Then, with 
bases loaded, Ah Scoggins hit the apparent 
game winning single to right field. Pioneer Lee 
Jackson who was on first base made a mental 
mistake. Instead of advancing to second, he 
began to congratulate his teammates. 
Meanwhile, the Pacers threw the ball to second 
for the force out. 

The Pacers played the Pioneers the following 
day at Bill Adeimy field and nipped Indian River 
4-2. Jeff Etsell raised his record to 2-2 by going 
the distance and picking up the win. David Diaz 
hit a two run homer.

SGA turns to new officers 

by Mark Mitchell 
Feature Editor 

The Student Government 
Association (SGA) has taken 
many turns this year, but it 
has doubtless been one of the 
most successful in recent 

The present Executive 
Board members will soon 
relinquish their seats to their 
newlv chbsen successors. 
They are: Richard 

Kochersperger, President; 
Edward Rigolo, Vice 
President; Jennifer 

Voted in Vice-President Ed Rigolo makes 
suggestion at Senate meeting. 

Hendnckson, Secretary; 
Alysia Letiziano, Treasurer. 

these four went unopposed 
and therefore eliminated the 
need tor an election. 
Unfortunately, this leaves 
them piey to all possible 
criticisms if anything goes 
awry. But, one hopes that this 
will not be the case, for these 
were the only individuals on 
the entire PBJC Central 
Campus who exemplified an 
interest in the affairs and 
welfare of the student body. 
Vice-President Bob Cobb, 
commented, "I insist that they 
be treated with all con- 
sideration and respect due to 
anyone in a position of 
authority; especially when 
they devote themselves to 
public service." 

If anyone wishes to address 
anv remarks to the new 
officers, they may do so by 
placing the comments in their 
mailboxes, located in the SAC 
Lounge, attending an SGA 
meeting, or by contacting 
Mark Mitchell at the 

A Multi-Campus Spoils Day 
is one of the majoi items on 
Ihe Student Government 
Agenda. It will be held Fnday. 
April 11. at the Central 
Campus. Spon soied by your 
SGA, activities include a 2 
mile walk, table tennis, vollev 
ball, tennis, racquetball, and 
basketball. For details, see

i elated subject, the 
Beachcomber wishes to join 
SGA in congratulating Byron 
Lobsinger, winner of the 
p o s t - p o n e d racquetball 
tournament. (To further ad 
eredibiu to the apathy 
argument ) only <S people 
entered the tourney. Perhaps 
that is not unusual for PBJC, 
because the Homecoming 
King and Queen weie chosen 
with 17 and 9 votes, 

The Student Government 
Association members for the 
past year were: Polly Young, 
President; Robert Cobb, Vice 
President; Nancy 

Luckasavage, Secretary; Les 

Markham. Treasurer; Valerie 
Aliotta, Guy Bair (1), Lisa 
Bennett. Beverly Bottosto, Joe 
Brown. Michael Cluimney, 
Maurice Eurgucta, Alysia 
Leu/iano. Mark Mitchell, 
Todd Schupper, Coliecn 
Walsh (1), and Phyllis 
Williams, senators . Please 
note that (I) indicates inactive 
members m SGA or at the voty 
least those who displayed a 
significant lack of 

participation. This should bo a 
definite consideration when 
the time comes to ic-elect and 
elect senators. 

The general feeling among 
these individuals is one of 
satisfaction and pride iur 
accurate!} and honestly 
repicscnting and resolving the 
crises that have arisen over 
the past yeai. Hnpelully the 
student body shares in this 
meritorious achievement and 
will continue to conuilnue to 
the high reputation 
established by the Student 
Organization of PBJC. 

Concert bandsters to perform f reebie 

The PBJC Concert Band, 
directed by Sy Pryweller, will 
present a free concert April 8

OPEC profits expand 
Public's pockets shrink 

It was reported by the Commerce Department on Wednesday 
that oil company profits rose at a record annual rate of 28 
percent at the end of last year. 

Simultaneous with the Commerce report, the Miami Herald 
ran a story on Phillips Petroleum Executive Vice-President 
Charles Kittrell in which he stated that "people are starting to 
realize that we are not part of the problem, we are part of the 
solution. It just doesn't make sense to blame us for a situation 
caused by OPEC and the misguided policies of our own 

Something's not compatible in these two reports. 

The increase in petroleum refining profits during the final 
three months of 1979 totaled S6 billion, by far the largest 
increase of any quarter of 1979 and compares with an increase of 
t>.5 percent during 1978. 

Now, it is true that OPEC started this mess and that there is a 
strong possibility that the government's policies are not up with 
the times, but can it be that the American people are relieving 
these advantageous, billion dollar profit making oil companies of 
their burden of blame? 

That's what Kittrell says, but he must have been talking to a 
group of Americans who have been held in solitary confinment 
on an island in the Pacific for the past ten years, certainly not to 
a majority of the population on the mainland. 

Sorry, Phillips Petroleum, but those profits are going to have 
to take a downward turn before you convience us naive 
Americans that we're not being robbed at your tanks but by our 
gov eminent and by OPEC alone. 



."WE CMVT H=sP IT " 

Don't blame Cruex 

AJb/j'sdith 'to 

Correction: The Beachcomber wishes to apologize to 
Mr. Gary Goldstein of the Reserve Life Insurance 
Company. In last weeks edition we misspelled his 
name in the companies ad. 

It has recently been brought to our 
attention, via a pamphlet distribution 
around the PBJC campus, that gay sex 
and V.D. is our responsibility. This 
opinion and phamphlet has not been 
well received around the Beachcomber 

We feel we have no responsibility for 
or to gay sex and V.D., since we have 
no interest in such. In fact, we find 
much of the pamphlet repulsive. 

Some of the "danger signs" listed 
include, "intense genital itching", 
"small cauliflower shaped growths on 
or around sex organs," and "pus 
covered feces" - repulsive! 

But "that's not all, there are some 
brilliant deductions under the 
"prevention" column, such as, "look 
for danger signs of your partner prior to 

having sex", and "know your sex 

This is not to say that gay V.D. is not 
a problem, it certainly is, and does 
indeed require treatment. But it is the 
gays who have the problem, and we at 
the Beachcomber would rather not read 
about gay V.D. , thank you. 

Humans are the only beings on earth 
who engage in sexual activity with 
members of the same sex, just as 
humans are the only beings who pollute 
the environment and kill one another 
for no reason. Really, is gayness the 
ONLY answer to the population 

The introduction in the pamphlet 
•ends with "please read the contents 
carefully and share the information 
with your friends." Anita's copy is 
already on the way.

Amid all the hoopla surrounding such 
important issues such as 5 percent absenteism 
and the half mill proposal, there is another small 
inconvenience at PBJC that with a little 
legislation, can be corrected. 

We think nothing of the time limit of our 
classes. The fact is, PBJC is one of only three 
Junior colleges that follow 60 minute class 
period schedules. All of the others, including 
many major universities follow a 50 minute 
schedule. By making all Monday, Wednesday, 
Friday classes 50 minutes, it would eliminate 
such awkward times are: 8:40, 9:50, 12:10 and 

With 50 minute periods, classes would begin 
at 7:30, 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 and so on, with 10 
minutes in between. The time lost is minimal, 
most classes are released early now anyway. 

It's not an immediately serious problem, but a 
annoying one that should be looked into.

SAC to sponsor picnic at North Campus 

by Robin Aurelius 
Staff Writer 

This week, instead of the 
usual North Campus News 
column which focuses on one 
event, this article will focus on 
many of the past, present and 
future happenings at PBJC- 

Last month, Phi Beta 
Lambda (PBL) went to the 
District V Competitions held at 
Miami-Dade Community 
College Two of the members 
from the Alpha Alpha Chapter 
(from the North Campus) 
received awards at the 
competition for their out- 
standing merit. Stephanie 
Millen received two first place 
awards in Economics and 
Extemporaneous Speaking. 
Jerry Self placed second in 

Extemperaneous Speaking. 
Stemphanie hopes to defend 
her first place titles when she 
attends the State Competitions 
which will be held in 
Jacksonville Beach on April 9, 
10, 11, and 12. 

The chapter also elevted a 
new Vice-President after the 
preceding VP resigned for 
personal reasons. The new VP 
is Bob Cusano an employee of 
Pratt and Whitney and a 
resident of Jupiter. Bob has a 
lot of new ideas to contribute 
to the business organization of 
the North Campus and the 
members feel confident that 
Cusano will be a great asset to 
the Alpha Alpha Chapter. 

Every so often, the chapter 
has guest lect urers to speak on 
subjects that usually have to - 

do with the field of business. 
Since a majority of the 
members are business majors, 
this would be the type of 
lecture that would most 
interest them. 

Fred Jordan, a business 
consultant to many national 
firms, took time off from his 
busy schedule of lecture tours 
and seminars, to speak on 
management pscyhology and 
setting goals for youself in 

Dr. E. K. Holloway was 
another of the Chapters 
distinguished lecturers. 
Holloway administered tests 
which helped ' to determine 
what your primary interest 
were, i.e., politically — 
religiously— -economically. 
Career counseling is

All That Jazz over-rated

Feature Editor 

The recent ly released Ail

Academy Award nominations. 
i«- highly over-rated in tin'

llie onset, this extravaganza 
lias been surrounded by 
controversy. Some call it a 
modern masterpiece while 
others call it self-indulgent, 
Unfortunately. I am' on the 
side of criticism. The movie is 
a semi -autobiographical 
account of the life of Bob 
Fosse, theatres preeminent 
choreographer and director. 
His past credits include A 
Chorus Line, Cabaret, and 
Lenny. 1 could not help but

this film, I'oi 1 expected to see 
the jiliiier, glamour, and 
spontaneity of (he Broadway I

was no more than a lengthy 
tale of one man's self - 
fulfilling prophecy.

Theatre department set to' 'jazz ' ' it up 

Bill Meredith 

It all began in December. 
Casting completed, the actors 
began studying lines and 
learning movements, unaware 
of how fast the production date 
would creep up on them. 

But now it is here. 
Wednesday night marks the 
opening of "Alice in 
Jazzland", and we thought it 
would be nice for you to have 
the opportunity to know the 
cast and their characters a 
little better. 

First, a little background. 
This production has been in 
the making for four months; 
no exaggeration. Faculty 
director Sunny Meyer and 
student directors Scott 
Thompson, Rita Duffy, and 
Willy Roan have had to 
undergo casting, dance studio, 
blocking, technical crews, 
rehearsals and run-throughs. 

The costumes and set are 
both quite elaborate, and have 
required a carat deal of labor. 
Technical director Art Musto 
and his crews have been 
planning light plots, prop lists, 
aiiil -a dceorau.j'i t«.r months, 
and the, as \uu must- now 
know. ha\ebecn no strangers 
to work themselves. 

Here is a rundown of the 

ladies and gentlemen of 
"Jazzland" — 

*Robin Holland - an 
accomplished singer, Robin 
will alternate as Alice and the 
Dormouse. She describes 
Alice as "an insecure 
nine-year old with a bad 
temper" and the Dormouse as 
"the lazy, lovable part of 
Alice's character". 

*Terri Byers - the other 
Alice/Dormouse alternate, 
Terri portrayed 'Beverly' in 
last semester's production 
"The Shadow Box". She has 
also worked on the make-up 
and costume committees for 

*John Fayssoux - the White 
Rabbit, "Alice's guide 
through Jazzland". John has 
worked on set decoration, 
props, and set design, and was 
a student director for "The 
Shadow Box".

Catterpillar. Spends most of 
his time on his mushroom, 
smoking a hookah pipe with 
some great stuff in .;. Mi

Hatter, who lives tip to his 
name. Can he found with his 
duck "Oatmeal". an 
"Heloise". his faithful table. 

Darin has worked on set 
design and appeared in 
numerous local plays. Likes his 
name spelled correctly, too. 

♦Gary Messick - the March 
Hare, who is "equally insane 
to the Mad Hatter, and cares 
only about drinking tea". Gary 
worked on publicity and 
composed music for "Alice". 

*Mary Peak - plays the 
Duchess, worked on lighting, 
and also appeared in "The 
Shadow Box". Describes her 
character as "thinking she is 
above everyone, and is trying 
to work her way in with the 
King and Queen". 

*Gwen Jones - the Cook, 
who is "usually angry and 
upset, and argues with the 
Duchess all the time". Gwen" 
is also a "member of the set

concert tickets. Dave promises 
to do well.

Violence In Sports -Parti 

Violence - It's part of the game 

Violence has not only 
become a part of sports, it has 
become part of the game 
itself. Why is violence present 
in sports? Is it because people 
really want to see blood? Is it 
thai when two teams are 
fighting for the big prize, 
tempers -flare? Nobody really 
knows why violence is playing ■ 
■a big pan in sports. People 
know thai violence is there, 
buf how do we stop it? 

All sport , whether pro- 
fessional or amateur, is violent. 
Some sports may not be as 
violent as others, but the end 
Vesuli is traumatic; sometimes 
ending in death. 

Broken legs from crushing 
tackles, a broken nose from a 
100 mph beanball, a severely 
bruised ankle from a hard 
body check into the boards, an 
auto . racer crashing into a 
stone wall at 200 mph. We 
have all seen it happen. It is a 
part of the game; we expect it. 

The words are so familiar, 
"Take me out to the old ball 
game." Baseball, our 
American past-time, Such a 
simple, fun loving game.. 
What can go wrong? Plenty! 

Jack Hamilton beaning 
Tony Cojiigliaro with a fast 
ball, just about ending a very 
promising career. A' pitch 
thrown at Oakland Athletic 
batter Bert Campaneris at his 
legs. Campaneris retaliated by 
throwing his- bat at the 
opposing pitcher, Reggie 
Jackson chocking Brewer 
pitcher Mike Caldwell after 
two consecutive brushback 

The beaning. The most 
lethal weapon in baseball. At 
any time a pitcher can end a 
player's career by the infamous 
brushback pitch. What makes 
a pitcher intimidate a batter to 
a point in which the batter is 
scared to death? The beanball 
is now and always has been a 
part of the gameplan. It is 
definitely a dangerous plan. 

Ty Cobb, one of the all-time 

greats of baseball, was not 

only great at hitting, he was 

also great at spiking. Cobb 

was notorious for going into a 

base with his spikes high, 

ready to shed the skin of an 

opposing player. The blood 

would show, but again, it is 

just pun of the game. 

Hie commisioner knows of 
.such tactir* m ' 1 "' 1 - ;, 

—i a 

serious injury during a game 

occurs, there may be court 

action against the sport, team, 

and player involved. Maybe 

nt'tcr that, some action will be 


Basketball is called a 

non-contact sport, How can 
that be said? Basketball is 
tilled with contact. Players 
diving all over the floor for a 
loose ball, elbows living under 
the basket, and players 
jumping over each others 
backs to grab a rebound. Any 
wrong move, or too much 
physical action can easily 
result in a fracas. 

The fight between Los 
Angeles' Kcrmit Washington 
and Houston's Rudy 
Tomjanovich is the most 
famous. A shoving match 
between Washington and 
Kocket cenler Kevin Kutmert 
occurcd. Washington was 
standing alone at mid-court- 
after a shoving match and saw 
some one rush him. Without 
hesitation, Washington turned 
and punched Tomjanovich in 
the face. Tomjanovich 
required plastic surgery to put 
his face back together. 
Tomjanovich later won a 3,3 
million dollar lawsuit. 

Such stiff penalties as 
awarded to Tomjanovich, 
should convince players, 
management, and league 
officials to keep a tighter rein 
on brutal play that may lead 
up to a fight. In other 
words, stiff penalties will show 
that viol ence does not pay . 

All was okay in the NBA 
until January 1 1 of this year, 
when Boston's Dave Cowens 
and Atlanta's Tree Rollins 
mixed it up, Cowens, who 
threw the first punch, was 
fined 52,500. Rollins was fined 
SI, 500. Harsher penalties by 
NBA Commissioner Larry 
O'Brien has slowed violent 

In the older days of 
basketball, there was an 
"enforcer". Just as in hockey, 
each team had a player who 
would heat up the action if any 
trouble was going on with a 
teammate. The most famous 
enforcer was "Jungle Jim" 
Luscutoff of the Boston 
Celtics. "He was the man on 
our team who could fight. If 
someone tried to hurt (Bob) 
Cousy, Luscutoff would be 
sent -into the game to get 
them," said former player and 
coach Tommy Heinsohn. 

A fight between Kareem 
Abdul-Jabbar and Kent 
Benson resulted in fines and 
injuries to both. Trading of 
punches between Darryl 
Dawkins and Maurice Lucas in 
a 1977 playoff game resulted 
in fines of $2,500 each. Stiffer 
fines in a sport such as 
basketball, is the only way to 
stop fights that can end up 
having an effect worse than 
one can imagine.

NCAA champs crowned Tonight 

by Jim Hayward 
Staff Writer 

Editors Note: The following 
preview was written prior to 
Saturday's semifinal games. 

This is it!" proclaims 
NBC-TV astute PRman as an 
introduction to tonight's NCAA 
Basketball Championship at 
Market Square Arena in 
Indianapolis. In this well 
balanced and wacky year, 
"Who is it?" would be a more 
appropriate opening for 
tonight's battle of the 

Number two Louisville, 
unheralded Iowa, number 20 
Purdue and the most unlikely 
of teams, UCLA. Long gone are 
DePaul, LSU, Kentucky, 
Indiana and the other so-called 
"powerhouses" as the 48 
team field, and grueling 
schedule have taken their toll. 

As with all single 
elimination tournaments, 

whoever is "hot" for one 
particular night or a number of 
nights will come out on top, 

sending the NCAA ranking, 
tourney seedings and byes 
plunging into the dumper. / 

The consensus pick here is 
Louisville in a squeaker over 
UCLA. However, don't be 
surprised if the Bruins or 
Purdue, or even Iowa's 
Hawkeyes take it. Joe Barry 
Carroll of Purdue can have 
only so many great games in a 
row. Bruin coach Larry 
Brown's youth, speed and 
determination should carry 

Iowa's only hope is to gut 
some heavy weights on the 
legs of Louisville's Darrell 
Griffith. His dunk against LSU 
was not be be believed (watch 
for his "360"). The Cardinals 
are not a one man show nor a 
circus of whirlybird dunks and 
behind the back passes. Coach 
Crum has cooked up a winner 
this year and with a little luck, 
he'll be wearing a net and 
sporting a championship 
trophy following tonight's 

Mullins optimistic 

by Bill Meeks 
Sports Writer 

The PBJC men's tennis team has a current record of 8-4 and is 
4-3 in division IV conference play. Tennis coach Tom Mullins 
says that his team is working hard on individual weakness's in 
preparation for the upcoming district finals to be held here on 
April 10 and 11. 

Mullins feels that the PBJC team will be one of the top 
contenders for the district title. There are nine players who 
make up the team. They are Jeff Cocherham, Roger Gonsales, 
Steve Shaerer, Aarif Karim, Roger Mancil, Mike Knowles, 
Keith Folwy, Bruce Brodh am, -and Steve Durham, — - -. 

Mullins is looking forward to a good year for his team and is 
already thinking about the state playoff's in May. Mullins 
invites all students to come and watch the tennis team's home 
matches held on the tennis courts behind the SAC Lounge.

Hey Mom, 

Don 't throw those cards away 

by Ross Sanders 
Sport Editor 

The soaring prices of gold and silver may be 
making news around the world, but little 
cardboard pictures are going up in value faster 
than you can say the word baseball card. 

That's right. Just about everyone of us men at 
one time collected baseball cards. We flipped 
them, we traded them, and we even sold them. 
We would do just about anything to complete 
our set. The cards that we collected for years 
and were probably stashed in the attic or even 
thrown away. 

Behind stamps and coins, baseball 
memorbilia is now the third most popular hobby 
in the country. There are shows, auctions, and 
sales at yearly conventions throughout the 

The collecting of baseball cards may bring 
back childhood memories, but they also bring in 
big bucks. The most sought after cards are the 

ones of name players. Cards of Ernie Banks, 
Robin Roberts, tris Speaker, and Reggie 
Jackson are some of the more collectable cards. 

The most famous baseball card of all time is a 
1910 tobacco card of Honus Wagner. The cards 
of that era were given out in packages of 
cigarettes. Wagner's card was taken off the 
market after a short period of time because 
Wagner was against cigarette smoking. Ten 
years ago the Wagner card was worth S900. five 
years ago S3.000, now it is going for 510,000. 
There are only about 15 known Wagner cards in 

Baseball cards are the most popular and most 
valuable of all sport collectables. Yearbooks. 
magazines, and autographs are big. but not in 
the class of baseball cards. 

Make sure you don't go home and blame your 
mother for throwing away all your cards. Who 
would have known that they would be worth 
anything anyway?

As clinical professor in Orthopaedic Surgery and Anatomy, University of Miami, School ot 
Medicine, Dr. Acton has had excellent occasion to analyze bone structures from many 
dimensions. The fossil record of man has severely eroded "props" for Evolution and strongly 
supported Creation teaching. Again, we mention only a few examples from his presentations. 

1) Java Man-Pitecanthropus erectns - was designed by several anthropologists from human 
and gibbon bone fragments scattered over a 40 mile stretch of river bed during at least 12 years 
of hunting by several men. 

(2) Peking Man -- Sinantliropus pekinensis -- was designed from one tooth found in an 
apothecary shop and bone fragments later found in a cave near Choukoutien, China, The entire 
collection is lost. 

(3) Neanderthal Man is tiue Homo sapiens sapien with a larger brain case than modern man 
and was afflicted with rickets and arthritis from childhood to give a "stooped" impression. 
Darwin's profile perfectly fits over Neanderthal's skull. 

4) Cro-Magon's profile is identical to that of Marquis Lafayetcede. 

(5) Pijtdown and Nebraska Men were frauds. , . 

(6) Leakey's Australopithecines were "knuckle-walking apes" by his own admission. Dr. 
Acton showed how one of the key specimen was a truly hitman femur, The bone&tooth&horn 
(osteodontokaratic) culture is imaginary. 

To quote Mark Twain: "There is something fascinating about science. One gets such 
wholesale returns of conjectures out of such a trifiling investment of facts." (from Life on the 
Mississippi, page 156.)

A women's place is 
In the "white" house 

Unfortunate as it may seem, it now appears 
that Mr. Carter and Mr. Reagan will vie for the 

Mam Americans who vote for one or these 
candidates (assuming they win) in November 
w ill probably do so as the lesser of the two evils, 
and who is to say which one that is? 

The fact is that the entire 70s decade 
produced not one president who proved himself 
capable, honest, and positively rememberable. 
Johnson didn't get much of a chance, Nixon 
proved just how crooked a politician can be, 
Ford further proved it by pardoning Nixon, and 
Carter can't find his way out of the White 

It is time for a change, there should be no 
question about that, but it seems we will have to 

wait at least four more years for a positive one. 
What could be done? 

There is one possibility which is not often 
considered- electing a woman as president. 

It has ne\ei been done, oi course, but that is 
the exact reason why it might be successful. The 
first female president will know that a few policy 
blunders or a major scandal would probably 
cause the voting public to vote against a female 
candidate in the future. 

If nothing else, the first woman president 
would have to be totally honest. There would be 
an enormous amount of pressure, such that no 
president has felt in the past few decades, but 
how could she go wrong with the company she 
would be following? 


Help the convicted 

Dear Editor: 

We are incacerated individ- 
uals in Marion Correctional 
Institution. No doubt this 
letter comes as a surprise to 
you and your readers, and we 
offer our apologies for the 
awkward intrusion. However, 
circumstances being what they 
are compels us to impose upon 
a more rational and human 
body of minds unattainable to 
us in our present exposure. 

What is the real prison? 
And what is there to do in 
prison- other than work and 
count the days? 

The real prison is not the 
prison you outsiders know: the 
real prison is different! The 
real prison is loneliness that 
sinks its teeth into the souls of 
men, emptiness that leaves a 
sick feeling inside. It is anxiety 
that pushes and swells; 
uncertainty that smothers and 
stifles. It is frustration, futility 
and despair. The real prison 
supresses, deadens and 
crushes: its wall seems to 
close in on the inmate. It 
makes life without meaning 
life without purpose. 

It is all this and more: It is 
being incacerated without 
notoriety, without the tradi- 
tional story book plot and 
intrigue. The real prison k 


The real prison is the mute 
drama of men who have been 
paying debts for 5,10,20, even 
50 years, but know their debt 
will never be paid in full. 

Too much of real prison is 
sordidness, indifference, dis- 
appointment. Crowded in the 
confines of correctional' insti- 
tutions are men who have seen 
too many third rate motel 
rooms in too many cities, too 
many cheap smoked filled gin 
mills oft too many skid-rows; 
too many days without beauty 
and too much darkness 
without light. The real prison 
is, more formidable than stone 
walls, steel bars< and giant 
towers. Almost shouted is its 
contempt for its fumbling and 
groping humanity, It listens 
unheeding, to the cries of the 

The real prison is the empty 
feeling that grows on a man 
who waits with anxious 
anticipation for the letters that 
never come, the visits that 
never happen. It is a place of 
despair, for us the committed 
to it for the rest of our natural 
lives- the youth whose whole 
future has been taken away by 
a demanding and relentless 

The real prison is a place 

filled with the regret of men 

o took lives in moments of 

wger. Once the moments of 
passion were spent, they 
began paying for their crimes 
and have paid for them every 
since in a thousand different 
ways. The narrowness of a cell 
that crushes, that bears down 
heavily, speaks of a familiar 
song on the radio that stab and 
torture the memory are part of 
prison life. The emptiness of 

the days and loneliness of 
nights are repeated endlessly. 
The real prison? It is the 
prison only those who live 
within its walls will ever know. 
For some of us there is the 
expression of our feeling and 
frustrations through written 

We believe it is never too 
late to broaden and clarify 
ones vocabulary. So I believe 
through correspondence, a 
person is capable of adapting

the closed mind, the deafness 
to new ideas, can only lead to 
stagnation and eventually, to 

There are times in our lives 
(as in almost every) physical 
existence becomes a terrible 
and lonely burden. Physical 
pain, emotional involvement is 
necessary. Emotional involve- 
ment that is sincere, encour- 
aging and responsive. 

In our efforts to "Change 
and grow", we realize 
self-expression to be an 
essential adjunt to the healing 
process, particulary when so 
many of my fellow prisoners 
seem to identify with "I'm 
no-body." (An Emily Dicker- 
son poem called "I'm 
no-body, who are you?)" 
Perhaps, admitting to the 
negative self-concept is the 
first step in extinguishing it 
and replacing it with the idea; 
"I'm Somebody who needs

Dear Editor, H ... . . 

Being near the end of the term, students are busily preparing, 
final projects and term papers for various courses. 1 too am one of t 
them. While preparing a paper for my psychology class, ; 
encountered many obstacles in our PBJC library, and this has not: 
been the first time. First of all, I found many references en mj 
topic (approx. 15 to 20 books), however the books were nowhere o. 
be found. 1 inquired about the books to the librarian, who simply 
said all of the books in question were checked out. When 1 asked 
her to please check, she refused to be of any service to me, saying 
that the books were now probably out at the Glades campus. 

The lack of assistance demonstrated here has happened to 
myself and my friends, also students here, while doing research 
in the library. I have a difficult time believing that all 20 books oa 
this topic have been checked out at one time, particularly since. 
instructors discourage and sometime forbid repeated topics oi 
research to be done. I also see no reason why these books all 
should be at the Glades campus (if indeed they really are) when 
some are needed here. This is usually the answer 1 get when J 
inquire about a book. 

If we are to do research projects for grades, I suggest that the 
library keep better watch over their books and make sure the? 
don't mysteriously "disappear" all of the time. 1 also suggest tfisl 
the librarians remove themselves from their chairs, which thej 
seem to be permanently affixed and assist students when tli-ej 
require it. I am getting tired of going to FAU in Boca Raton if 
order to find am books on my topics. Also, if these so calfe 
"librarians" know anything of the library, they should knowwte 
type of books are under specific call numbers. 1 hope sometmni 
can soon be done so future PBJC students will not encounter© 
problems that myself and my friends have encountered here fa 

the past 2 years. ,

Being There 

By: Mark Mitchell 
Feature Editor 
Being There is one of the 
finest, most intriguing and 
satisfying movies of the year. 
This masterpiece is a stunning 
adaption of Jerzy Kosinski's 
novel of the same name. Peter 
Sellers and Shirley McClaine 
deliver brilliant, electrifying, 
and restrained performances. 
In fact. Seller's performance is 
so sweeping, he should win 

the Academy Award tonight if 
there is any justice in the 
world. Dustin Hoffman did a 
superb job in Kramer Vs. 
Kramer, but it was a role 
several other actors could have 
tackled equally as well. Jack 
Lemmon was excellent in l»e 
China Syndrome, but this 
writer will never palate the 
idea of an Academy Award 
going to anyone even remotely 
Associated with a disaster 

theme movie- regardless of how 
pertinent or coincidental. Roy 
Scheider was commendable in 
All That Jazz, yet this isolated 
brilliant performance was not 
complementary to the other 
excesses of the film. And 
Justice For AH was an 
explosive creation, but again, 
it wasn't Al Pacino who made 

it so. 

The lead role, Chance the 
Gardener, is one any actor 

would die for. That is if such a 
role was available. Much to 
my Chagrin, it seems as 
though a role of tins 
magnitude comes but once a 
decade, if that often. In fact, 
not since Malcolm McDowell 
(A Clockwork Orange) has 
such a complete character 
burst onto the screen. 

Being There- is a poignant 
story ot a lone man, Chance, 
who spent his entire life in the 
service of a wealthy man. He 
never ventured beyond the 
walls of the estate and knew ot 
life only by watching television 
and working in his garden.

Sabres picked for cup 

By Robert Bryde 

Sports Writer 

This year the National 
Hockey League expanded its 
playoff format to allow sixteen 
teams to vie for the coveted 
Stanley Cup. However, there 
are only six or seven 
legitimate Contenders, and 
any one of these teams could 
break the Montreal Canadians 
string of four straight 
championships. Here is a 
breakdown of the contenders: 

Philadelphia Flyers- Clinch- 
ed the #1 spot early, (along 
with the home-ice advantage 
in the playoffs) but faded 
down the stretch. Having to 
depend on rookie goalie Pete 
Peters in the playoffs could 
spell diseaster. The Flyers open 
against the Edmonton Oilers, 
who finished with a flourish. 
Look for the Flyers to make a 
quick exit, in the first or 
second round. 

Boston Bruins- The pick to 
take the Cup until goalie Gilles 
Gilbert ended his season with 

an injury a week ago. Gerry 
Cheevers can't possibly carry 
the load by himself, but the 
Bruins strong play at the tail 
end of the schedule (due to 
Harry Sindens takeover) could 
help spark the Bruins to the 
final four. 

Minnesota North Stars- The 
dark horse. They have a first 
' rate goalie in Gilles Meloche 
and the Stars played well 
consistently throughout the 
season. Pick here is for the 
North Stars to surprise and 
make it to the semi-finals. 

New York Rangers- Cinder- 
ella team of a year ago. Have 
two chances this time 
around.. .Slim and None. Joe 
Slim and Frank None, who the 
Rangers brought up from the 
minors late in the year. 
Rangers will have to struggle 
just to get past Atlanta in the 
first round. 

Montreal Canadians- Les 
Habitants four year hold on 
(he Cup appears to be at an 
end. Players and Coach Ruel 

are at odcls and can't seem to 
concentrate on the game. 
Tremendous amount of talent 
should carry them to the 
semis'. Look for Hartford 
Whalers to give a battle in 
opening round. 

New York Islanders- After 
acquisition of Butch Goring in 
late season trade with L.A., 
the Isles went on a tear. Chico 
Resch finally woke up in goal 
and is now in top form. 
Islanders have a tough road 
ahead, but will finally make 
the finals. 

Buffalo Sabres- Led by 
Vezina Trophy winners, Bob 
Suave and Don Edwards. 
Danny Gares' exploding for 50 
plus goals has Scotty Bowman 
smiling and Sabre fans 
anticipating their first champ- 
ionship . 

Final prediction- The Buff- 
alo Sabres bring home the 
Stanley Cup, beating the New 
York Islanders in an exciting 
seven game finale.

Playoffs Set 

by Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

The JC softball team, which has been struggling through their 
season is putting it all behind them to get ready for the state 
playoffs. The state tournament is being held this year. at the 
University of South Florida. 

The Pacers as a team are hitting well, but the defense has been 
hurting them. It's not so much the mental errors but the easy 
routine plays aren't being made. 

The Pacers played a doubleheader against Brevard and 
Valencia last week. They lost the first game 8-7 on errors in the 
last inning to Brevard. Valencia also took advantage of late inning 
errors to beat JC 6-5. 

The State Tournament will be between April 17th and 19th in

Haynes fills vacated post 

The April 16 meeting of the 
District Board of Trustees brought 
changes in PBJC personnel posts. 

Dr. Melvin Haynes Jr., an 
educator, is returning to his native 
state and will become the third Vice 
President of Student Affairs in the 
history of the college. 

Joining the PBJC administration 
on July 1, Dr. Haynes is currently 
employed as the Director of the 
Counseling and Self Development 
Center and Assistant Professor of 
Counselor Education at South 
Carolina State College. 

Dr. Haynes, age 40, is a native of 
Fruitland Park, Florida, and 
obtained his early education in Lake 
County and his Bachelor of Science 

Degree from Florida A & M. 

He will take the position vacated 
by the death of Dr. W. Ervin 
Rousson. The title was created 
during the long career of Paul 
Glynn, who moved from Dean of 
Student Personnel to Vice President 
of Student Affairs. 

Mr. Robert Moss, Dean of 
Student Activities, has served as 
acting vice president during a 
search for a replacement. 

Haynes will be in charge of 
counseling, admission and registra- 
tion, and the entire range of student 
activities, including athletics. 

An athletic 6'1 1/2" and 195 
pounds, Dr. Haynes is married to 
the former Yvonne Young and has 

four children. 

Dr. Haynes says he is pleased to 
be returning to such a beautiful part 
of his native state, and is challenged 
by the position at PBJC. 

"Developing student services for 
a diverse, non resident, short-term, 
part-time student population like 
that at most community colleges 
presents a tremendous challenge" 
expressed Haynes. 

"But the people I have met at 
Palm Beach Junior College, the 
president, the board, and a number 
of staff members have all been 
friendly, cooperative, supportive 
people, and together I am sure we 
will be able to meet the challenge," 
he anticipated. 

Dr. Melvin Haynes to start on job July 1.

Mr. Bill spots Sluggo 

'Evita" - She didn't say much, but... 

It seems that one of our most interesting and 
provocative letters from each semester comes 
from one of the campus' "little people". This 
recent letter voiced complaints which are not 
often considered by those who are over nine 
inches tall or made of clay. Maybe "little 
people" around here deserve a better shake 

Dear Editor, 

This will surely be my last semester at PBJC. 
I thought last semester was bad but this one has 
been ridiculous! 

1 change my major from Science to Theatre 
because 1 was tired of being used for all the 
labotomy experiments. Anticipating a change, I 
headed tor the auditorium. 

It took me only two days to get there. I was 
backed up on my homework already, but that 
was o.k. I wanted to be an actor! But they threw 
me out of the Acting class and into Children's 
Theatre. I don't know why. 

After that came Stagecraft. I didn't think that 
would be so bad, but on the first day I bumped 
heads with the teacher and was knocked 
unconscious. When I came to, the instructor was 
telling me how 1 had to put in thirty hours extra 
time during the semester. What an 

The millage was really exciting for me. Dr. 
Eissey called to invite me to the millage victory 
party, and proceeded to stomp on my head while 

jumping up and down to celebrate after the 
victory announcement. 

I was hurt and decided to roam the campus, 
feeling I might be safer. But nooooo! My dog, 
Spot, got run over in the hall by a woman on a 
giant tricycle. Then 1 got stuck in the slot of a 
vending machine and was again knocked 
unconscious, this time by a Dr. Pepper. 

This was the last straw. I decided to apply for 
financial aid to help pay for my injuries. I filled 
out all the forms and turned them in, but then I 
encountered Notary Sluggo, who refused to 
notarize my papers and instead notarized my 

Enough of this campus, I said. I'm going out 
to watch a Pacer baseball game. I used to love 
baseball, but I had never watched a game in 
person before. Poor Spot. In the bottom of the 
fourth, he got smashed again, this time by a foul 
line drive, 

I'm going broke paying the clay surgeon for 
mine and Spot's injuries. I hereby resign from 
all classes and activities at PBJC. From now on, 
I'm just going to sit here in front of the 
Beachcomber office and look up (especially at 
girls with skirts). But, oooooh noooooooo, here 
comes the new staff and Editor Sluggoooooo 

Sincerely and painfully, 
Mr. Bill

Sympathy voters 

When Jimmy Carter won 
the New Hampshire primary 
on February 26 he did so in the 
face of a 112 day-old hostage 
crisis in Iran as well as a 
nervous economy that is still 
threatening to take its steepest 
tumble since the Great 
Depression of the 1930's. One 
can hardly help but wonder 

The favorite factor to be 
measured by the likes of 
established, competent poll- 
sters seems to be the "trust 
factor." This is the one thing 
where Carter has held a strong 
lead over his opponents in 
every state except New York, 
where the Jewish voters 
pulled him down. 

But how long will this trust 
hold out when poeple begin to 
find ii difficult to enjoy the 
"prosperous American way of 
life" to which they have 
become so accustomed? 

This may be where Ronald 
Reagan and the Republican 
Party's cross-over success 
comes in. In the fine tradition 
of reactionary rights, he 

sounds off promises of a 
return to the good life, the 
prosperous, strong America 
one would be willing to fight 
for, to stand up for, to die for. 
My country, right or wrong. 
It appears to be a philosophy 
to which we might trace the 
nucleus of Jimmy's strength. 
And what about "My 
President right or wrong". 
Perhaps it is to this type of 
logic which is so similar to the 
former that we can trace the 
good results that Mr. Carter 
has reaped from the hori /.ion- 
less harvesting plot known as 
American voters. If the trust 
factor does play a major role 
here and if the voters are 
sympathetic to Jimmy Carter's 
insurmountable problems, and 
if, moreover, they are firm in 
their conviction that Jimmy or 
Ronnie are the only two 
candidates out of what they 
may already feel to be a 
half-way decent bunch of 
political frontrunners who can 
manage our government, how 
is it then that they have 
reached such conclusions? 

Perhaps the voters in this 
country feel that Jimmy is 
doing the best that he possibly 
can and that he has done more 
to bring back the old 
traditional patriotism that 
America used to know. Or 
maybe frustrated Republican 
voters arc positive that that 
nice fellow from California,- 
you know the one that used to 
be in the movies, Ronald 
Reagan is the God-sent 
answer to our political and 
economic woes. If in any way 
shape or form these are in fact 
the reasons behind the voter's 
way of thinking nationwide, 
isn't something happening 
here that is in itself a break 
with American tradition? That 
tradition being that some- 
where along the line a 
candidate used to be popular 
because he had such a 
profound awareness of the 
critical issues at hand, that he 
offered a glimmer of hope as 
well as a host of new and 
progressive ideas for getting 
the country back into shape 

If voters have become 
sympathetic to Jimmy Carter 
and if they have been inspired 
by (he campaign rhetoric of 
Ronald Reagan, aren't they in 
effect doing two things: 
overlooking concrete domestic 
and economic issues and 
looking for a way that the past 
can somehow be revived? And 
also, isn't this line of 
reasoning almost like taking 
the easy way out of being 
bothered with all that jibberish 
about those complex and 
critical issues? 

If sympathy and searching 
for a means to bring back the 
old order are determining 
factors as to who our next 
President will be, how then 
will the voters feel by 1984? 
That they may have made a 
mistake, that perhaps back in 
1980 that wasn't the way of 
going about things in a 
democratic voting process/ 
We feel that, if anything, the 
voters will be significantly less 
concerned with the good old 
days and certainly less 

WCEZ rocks back 

Radio station WCEZ-FM in 
Jupiter, which has had an easy 
listening format for years, has 
changed to a rock format from 
7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Easy listening 
music will still be played 
during the day, but in the 
evening Joe Draper will 
entertain all with his "Night 
_ Moves" show. 

Draper, voted the number 
one Palm Beach County disc 
jockey in 1975, will 'play 
mellower rock selections from 
7-9, and, as he puts it, 
"anything goes" from 9-1 

"The people who listen to 
this type of show are listening 
because they want to hear the 
music- not for background 
music" Draper points out. He 

also makes it very clear that 
the program will contain no 

"You can dance to it" he 
says, "but most people 
weren't really into it and now 
it's dying because it's become 
boring. ' ' 

"Rock and roll has more 
vitality. It's a musical melting 
pot that encompasses every 
kind of music. ' ' 

So if you want to hear rock 
after dark, tune in to 
WCEZ-FM, or "Z-97" as 
Draper calls it, at 96.7 on your 
FM dial. With the music 
format and Joe Draper at the 
controls, this station could 
play the best rock music Palm 
Beach County has to offer.

Eva Peron, the saint of 

Argentina and wife of dictator 
Juan Peron, would never have 
guessed that her life and 
death would become the basis 
for one of the most famous and

of "Jesus Christ Superstar," 
have transformed her life into 
the staggering work "Evita. ' '

financially unsuccessful, the 
stage production "Evita" is 
one of the hottest tickets 
among theatre — goers 
throughout the world. It is a 
sensation. The premiere 
showing was in London last 
summer, where it was an 
instantaneous success The 
music from the Broadvvav 
production has been released, 
but lacks the joie de vive and 
classical quality of the 
original. "Evita" is the most 
talked about show on 
Broadway, but has been 
banned in Argentina. 

The opera is based upon the 
life of Eva Peron, who 
abandoned an unstable acting 
career and dedicated her life 
to helping the "decamisados" 
(the shirtless poor of Argen- 
tina), whose lives were a 
continuous struggle. She 
quickly became a saint
